Villagers for Trump planning sign-waving event at busy Villages intersection

Members of Villagers for Trump are gearing up for a sign-waving event in the Lady Lake portion of Florida’s Friendliest Hometown.

Members of the group, which formed a little more than a year ago and quickly has become the choice of area Republicans interested in being active in GOP politics, will meet Friday, Aug. 16 at 9 a.m. at the corner near the Perkins Restaurant and Bakery at 905 Bichara Blvd.

Close to 40 members of Villagers for Trump attended a flag-waving event on June 14 at the corner of Morse Boulevard and County Road 466.

The eatery is located at the busy intersection of U.S. Hwy. 27/441 and Avenida Central, which is where the Villagers for Trump members and others will gather to wave signs and show their support for the president. The event will last for about an hour and those attending are encouraged to park in the shopping center lot behind Perkins.

Members of Villagers for Trump plan to bring plenty of signs but those attending are welcome to bring their own. The group has found that four-inch letters are easiest for passing motorists to read and they encourage signs that represent current issues or just make a statement about where someone stands on an issue.

Everyone is invited to attend the event, as the group hopes to have enough participants to station sign-wavers at all four corners. Those participating also are encouraged to bring chairs if they want to sit down during the event. For questions email Donna Hoak at

And on July 19 the group gathered for a similar event at the busy intersection of U.S. 301 and State Road 44.
