UPDATES & NEWS
HELP NEEDED! Two very important committees are currently without a chair. Our Habitat Committee that does such great work in planning and installing the landscape at the annual Habitat Women’s Build where all the work on renovating the home and the landscaping are undertaken by women for women. The Publicity Committee also needs a chair. Anyone who has had experience in compiling and issuing press releases, please consider taking this on – even if you haven’t had experience it’s something that can be readily learned. Remember – we all need to serve on at least one committee. It’s a great way to make friends while doing a lot of good for the club. Terry Fisher, our Membership Chair, has details of how the committees work and if you would like to read about it, give her a call and she’ll send you the information.

HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
The Garden Club of Cape Coral, Lee County Master Gardener Volunteers and Habitat for Humanity thank LCEC for its commitment to sponsor and promote safe gardening practices and Florida Friendly Landscaping. Together, a family in need will achieve its goal of homeownership with a low-maintenance, attractive, Florida Friendly yard while providing a demonstration landscape that will serve as a model for other residents.
LCEC joins Garden Club members and Master Gardeners in reminding homeowners of the law to Call Before You Dig! Homeowners can avoid striking underground utilities by calling 811 or visiting the Florida website https://www.sunshine811.com to access a free utility locating service. It is best to call at least two days before you plan to dig. Electric, water, gas and cable companies will be notified of your plans and will come to your property to locate and mark the lines.For more information read the article in the Cape Coral Breeze
