IMG_0161In addition to gardening and flower arranging tips, Naples Garden Club has allowed Rosy Hoeppner to renew an old friendship. “It has brought back a friendship after 27 years,” Rosy says.

Looking over the list of new provisionals last spring, Rosy Hoeppner saw a name she recognized. Rosy had a great friend in Nebraska, but this friend moved to Kansas City and they lost touch. Rosy emailed asking if Donna Blocker is the friend she had known so long ago. Indeed she is. They cried, they laughed, and they met for cocktails. Not only does the Garden Club present opportunities for new friendships, but occasionally rekindles old ones as well.
