Meet Our President
GCOCC President Ann Block (2019 - 2021)
It was an honor for me to accept the position of President and
to represent The Garden Club of Cape Coral for the next two years.
With your help, I hope to carry on the work of our Past Presidents.
2019-2020 is going to be a very exciting year for us with many
fun activities, including a Fashion Show to raise money for the Blue
Star Marker we intend installing at Eco Park in 2020 – Cape Coral’s
Golden Anniversary Year. Our Standard Flower Show at the end of
April will also celebrate this golden anniversary.
March in the Park 2019, our annual major fund raiser in which
we all participate, was our best yet and allowed us to make
donations to local schools and the butterfly garden at Rotary Park,
give scholarships to local high school kids, and design and install the
landscape at Habitat’s Cape Coral Women’s Build. Next year’s MIP,
on March 14, will be our 12th – can we break records again?
Thanks to our Program Chairs, Nora Hoover and Elsa
Schutzman, we have an excellent program of speakers to look
forward to, plus fun special events throughout the season organized
by our Special Events Committee, Lois Luber, Christine Prestella and
Donna Schneider. We are updating our Website to be more user
friendly and interactive with our modern-day communication
devices. Don’t forget, if you’re buying anything on the web, click on

It takes a village to make our “working” Garden Club VERY
SPECIAL. This new season, we will continue to be educated, to
promote civic beautification, focus on environmental awareness,
and give back to our community. I’m sure we all look forward to
enjoying and creating long lasting friendships with our fellow
My special thanks to our weekly Columnists, Jean
Shields and Joyce Comingore, who introduced me to The Garden
Club of Cape Coral through The Cape Coral Breeze newspaper. I sign
Happy Gardening...Until We Meet Again!
