Motorists traveling through Land O’ Lakes and Lutz on Wednesday are likely to notice red, white and blue in a sea of green.
As America marks the 12th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the members of the Lutz-Land O’ Lakes Woman’s Club plan to hit the road to show their support for the country, its service men and women and those who died in the attacks.
Club members have taken part in the visible patriotic display on every anniversary since the attacks, wrote Patricia Serio, the club’s spokeswoman, in an email to media.
The reason? “
To commemorate those lost and those who have served in the aftermath and who are still serving,” she said.
Motorists will see members of the club in their green T-shirts Wednesday from 9 to 10 a.m. at the SunTrust bank, 21744 State Road 54. They will also appear at the Old Lutz Schoolhouse on U.S. 41 from 5 to 7 p.m.
“Feel free to join the club members, bring the kids and a flag to wave and show your patriotism,” Serio said.
