Message from Commissioner Maxwell B. Chambers
My dear residents,
On January 18 and 19, your city commission, including myself, traveled to Tallahassee.
It was an exciting time attending Broward Days to advocate for the diverse needs and concerns of Miramar residents. Broward Days hosts local workshops, hosts events and discussions with state and local leaders, and coordinates an annual multi-day forum in the state capital. My main project included the expansion of the Country Club Ranches water line.
February is dedicated to Black History Month, and here in the city of Miramar, we proudly celebrated the accomplishments of African Americans, recognizing their pivotal role in United States history. As the month drew to a close, on Monday, February 28, ASHE caused a stir with an electrifying, sold-out performance of “Celebrating Garvey & Reggae.” Marcus Garvey was a Jamaican-born black nationalist and leader of the Pan-Africanist movement, which sought to unify and connect people of African descent around the world.
ASHE’s energetic and poignant performance by Marcus Garvey in their Broadway-style musical rendition was well received by the packed house at the Miramar Cultural Center. Awards were given to some of our own Miramar residents, such as Ky-Mani Marley, son of the famous Bob Marley, and Michael Dawson. Other winners were Dale Holness, former Mayor of Broward County, Jean Garvey, daughter-in-law of Marcus Garvey, Geoffrey Philps, I Jabulani Tafari, Priest Douglas Smith, Andy Ballentine and Norman “Humble Lion” Lawrence and Anthony B, Reggae popular. Artist. All have made vast contributions to the preservation of the culture and heritage of our Black history.
The audience was delighted when Ky-Mani Marley performed one of his father’s songs, “Don’t Worry About a Thing”, as he received his award. And as if that weren’t enough to surprise them, they were delighted once again when crooner Bunny Rose, accompanied by Jamaica’s Consul General in Miami, the Honorable Oliver Mair, both performed a dazzling performance of “My Way.” by Frank Sinatra. Just before ASHE returned to the stage for their grand finale, Anthony B, once again fired up the crowd as they sang with him while showcasing his signature dance moves, undoubtedly making this event one of the best of all time. to see at the Miramar Cultural Center.
On April 16, families are invited to our Easter Eggstravganza 2022! I await the presentation text of this event.
I wish everyone a healthy, holy and happy Easter 2022.
