Council honors volunteers and staff for Food & Wine Fest


Mayor Manny Cid and Councilmembers honored a group of Miami Lakes community members who coordinated and participated as volunteers for the first Miami Lakes Food and Wine Festival during the March 6 Council meeting.

Matos thanked her festival team of dedicated volunteers and supportive Town staff for contributing to the event’s success.

Volunteer participants included Andy Perez, Anel Ruano, Calixto Vallejo, Carlos Garcia, Daly Batista-Batchelor, Dwight Albert Roldan, Dwight Roldan, Eric Rodriguez, Giuseppe Zuozo, Gladys Roldan, Gloria Garcia, Haydee Sera, JC Fernandez, Jorge Garcia, Jorge Pena, Nancy Rogers, Nicolai Guzman, Omar Gonzalez, Pilar Fernandez, Robert Alonso and Tony Fernandez.
