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. The Blue Star Memorial Marker sponsored by the Garden Club of Cape Coral will be located in Eco Park just off of Veterans Parkway. Our Fashion Show Fundraiser for this project was a success and our Club has bought the Blue Star Memorial Marker for our Armed Forces Past/Present/Future. The funds will also be used to pay for the permit, hire a contractor and the installation of the marker in Eco Park.
The BLUE STAR MEMORIAL MARKER HAS BEEN SHIPPED. Frank and Sons Moving and Storage will receive and hold the marker until we can have it installed. Frank and Sons are generously donating the storage and delivery of the marker to Eco Park. A big thank you to Frank and Sons!
Our Ceremony will be held in November 2020 to coincide with the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Cape Coral.
