MIAMI LAKES, Florida, April 13, 2016 – The Town of Miami Lakes is excited to launch the I <3 Miami Lakes campaign. An initiative brought forth by Councilman Tony Lama, this campaign is intended to encourage residents to take pride in their community. Encouraging pride in our community is essential for achieving the quality of life desired by our residents. Whether it be supporting local businesses, volunteering, or lending a neighbor a helping hand, civic pride results in community improvement.
"It gives me great pride to unveil the ‘I Heart Miami Lakes’ campaign. Like other cities around the nation, we have so much to be proud of, but Miami Lakes is extra special,” said Councilman Lama. “It's a gem and it's our gem. In cooperation with the Town’s Committees and our are great staff, the launch of this campaign strikes at the heart and essence of what is Miami Lakes and encourages the community to take pride in their town and take personal responsibility in keeping Miami Lakes beautiful."
We’re encouraging all of you! Neighbors, local officials, service clubs and religious organizations all must play a role to foster strong civic pride and remind us that civic pride is often about ‘doing the little things’ that make a big difference.
