During a special presentation of the April 17, City Council meeting, Councilwoman Judy Waldman recognized Lillian Levine for her 20 years of service at the William F. “Bill” Dickinson Community Center.
“It is important to distinguish those who freely give their time and energy to serve in their communities,” said Councilwoman Waldman. “I am proud today to recognize Lillian Levine for her years of dedication and service to her community and its citizens; she is an inspiration to us all and a friend. I wish her the best in her new endeavor.”
Ms. Levine is a retired nurse who has been a Homestead resident since 1993. She will be moving to Gainesville in the near future to be with her family. Her father was Chief Engineer at Lockheed in Burbank, California and started his aviation career with Howard Hughes at Hughes Aircraft. Ms. Levine herself has three daughters, one a retired R.N, one works for a security agency and one who retired after 35 years working for Dade Schools. Two of her grandsons are registered R.N’s working on their masters and one grandson serves in the Air Force. As a past president for nine years of the membership committee, she has been a valuable asset to the William F. “Bill” Dickinson Community Center, formerly known as the Homestead Senior Center. For over 20 years, Ms. Levine has helped in many ways by organizing and running a weekly Bunko Game, organizing monthly dining out activities, and holding birthday parties each month. She has also been the president of the Sacred Heart Social Club and was president of the Keys Gate Condo Association for nine years.
