Councilwoman Judy Waldman was honored at a reception at Homestead Main Street, located on the second floor of the Homestead old Town Hall Museum, for her years of service and dedication to the organization.
“Judy has always been a tremendous help and loyal supporter of our organization,” said Main Street Executive Director Yvonne Knowles. “Her creative ideas and enthusiasm for a downtown Main Street program inspired our members and we wanted to recognize her for that.”
Councilwoman Waldman served as the Council Liaison of Main Street for five years and was instrumental in their continued growth as an institution as well as acquiring the funding that prompted that growth. She helped increase awareness in the community about the organization’s mission to revitalize Downtown Homestead and improve the quality of life of our citizens. Her lasting legacy with Main Street is the Biscayne/Everglades Greenway Bike Festival, which attracts hundreds of cyclists every year to ride along the Greenway Trail that connects the Everglades and Biscayne Bay National Parks.
“I am very honored and touched by this reception and the warmth expressed by the board members and others. Main Street is very dear to my heart and I will continue to support them in their endeavors” said Councilwoman Judy Waldman.
Homestead Main Street is a non-for-profit organization that works closely with the City of Homestead, the Community Redevelopment Agency and other organizations to initiate downtown economic revitalization and historic preservation. And, through their various events, Main Street works to bring an expanded cultural element to the downtown area.
