Our Garden Club has members from all parts of the country as well as native Floridians. We have a wealth of wisdom to share. Together we explore the uniqueness of South West Florida’s diversity of plant life and challenges of the climate, learning from one another and our visiting speakers.
We invite you to join us in our ongoing effort to encourage environmental consciousness in enjoying the gifts of nature in Southwest Florida. You will receive a very warm welcome!

Blue Star Memorial Marker

Blue Star Memorial Marker

Blue Star Memorial Markers in the United States pay tribute to the U.S. Armed Forces. The National Council of State Garden Clubs, now known as National Garden Clubs, Inc., started the program in 1945 after World War II. The Blue Star was used on service flags to denote a service member fighting in the war.

We have raised money for a marker in Eco Park just off of Veterans Parkway. The presentation will coincide with Cape Coral’s 50th Anniversary in 2020! The BLUE STAR MEMORIAL MARKER has been purchased and shipped. Frank and Sons Moving and Storage will receive and hold the marker until we can have it installed. A BIG THANK YOU to Frank and Sons!!! They will be donating the cost of storage and delivery of the marker to Eco Park. We will be hiring a contractor, getting a permit and getting it installed in Eco Park as soon as possible. Our Blue Star Memorial Ceremony will be happening outside and on a smaller scale than originally planned on November 9th 2020. More details to follow.
