GFWC Lutz-Land O’Lakes Woman’s Club proudly funded member Pam Blumenthal to represent it on the recent Honor Flight escorting veterans to visit the war monuments in Washington, DC. Ms. Blumenthal served as “guardian” to 30 year veteran of the Army AND Navy, Henri Bellavance, who resides in Largo, Florida.
Afterward, our Guardian Pam regaled the club with wonderful anecdotal accounts by the veterans of their wartime experiences and their appreciation for being honored with this special trip. Upon arrival of their return flight, the vets were surprised with some even moved to tears by the hearty “welcome home” reception at the airport by our club members as well as many other groups applauding these wonderful men and women who served us so well.
