Garden Club of Cape Coral
March In The Park
March in the Park will be held March 14, 2020! For more information, vendor and sponsor applications please click here.
This is our major fund raiser of the year and the proceeds enable us to give donations to schools, Marty Ward Merit Awards to local high school students, landscaping of the annual Habitat Cape Coral Women’s build home, FFGC projects Camp Wekiva and SEEK, plus a donation annual to the Rotary Park Butterfly Garden in memory of members who have passed.
We thank all our visitors and vendors who made the occasion such a resounding success in 2019 and are hoping for a repeat success in 2020. Thanks, too, to to all our members for their hard work in staging MIP.
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 are raising money for a marker in Eco Park just off of Veterans Parkway. The presentation to coincide with Cape Coral’s 50th Anniversary in 2020!
