Coral Gables Blue STar Memorial
The Coral Gables Garden Club is proud to be part of a newly erected Blue Star Memorial installed in front of the Coral Gables Youth Center.
The Blue Star Memorial Program honors all men and women that serve in the United States Armed Services. This program began with the planting of 8,000 Dogwood trees by the New Jersey Council of Garden Clubs in 1944 as a living memorial to veterans of World War II. In 1945, the National Council of State Garden Clubs adopted this program and began a Blue Star Highway system that covers thousands of miles across the Continental United States, Alaska, and Hawaii.

The Coral Gables Garden Club's 2019 Garden & House Tour was on Saturday, March 16, 2019 and it was amazing.
Check-in began at the Butterfly Garden at 3443 Segovia Street where the first 100 guests released a butterfly into the garden. It was spectacular to see this! Then it was on to homes and gardens in Coral Gables, and each offered their own unique settings and beauty.
At the end of the tour, guests enjoyed cookies and tea served by past Presidents of the Coral Gables Garden Club, and the Bake Sale and Plant Sale offered goodies and greenery to be taken home.
Thank You to all who attended. We hope you enjoyed it and we hope to see you at the next Garden & Home Tour!
