Lakewood Ranch Community Activities is calling on our LWR residents to remember and honor those heroes who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our great nation and the freedoms we hold dear. We’re asking residents to join us in the following ways to commemorate Memorial Day.
1. Residents can send a photo or video giving their thanks that will be used as part of our Memorial Day tribute to our fallen heroes.
2. At 3 p.m. on Memorial Day, we invite all LWR residents to stand in front of your home and join us for The National Moment of Remembrance. This is an annual event that asks Americans, wherever they are, to pause for a duration of one minute to remember those who have died in military service to the United States. Immediately following, you can join us on our Facebook page as we say the Pledge of Allegiance and commence the parade beginning by waving a flag.
3. Submit a hero nomination of a friend, family member, or community member who you’d like to have recognized. For every submission, Lakewood Ranch Community Activities will make a donation to our local VFW Post 12055, enabling them to continue to fund their scholarship program benefitting the Lakewood Ranch High School ROTC.
Interested applicants should submit their contribution via e-mail to Info@lwrca.org or at LWRTributetoHeroes.org.
