Emily Bader Represents the Winter Park Garden Club for Florida Beach Preservation

Emily Bader has been a member of garden clubs over the last 25 years.  She was originally a member of the Suburban Garden Club of Germantown, TN.  Among many opportunities, Bader chaired the Beautification Commission for 8 years while a member.  Once she relocated to Winter Park, Fla to be close to her grandchildren, Bader found herself a member of the Winter Park Garden Club.  On Saturday June 8, 2013, Bader returned to the Winter Park Farmer’s Market for the third time to collect signatures for water, beach, and wildlife preservation.  Bader explained that having been a Girl Scout, she always has “understood the value of preserving the beaches and leaving our areas in a good state so that they transition to the next generation.”  Bader and fellow volunteers are trying to collect 700,000 signatures, which Bader stated is the required amount needed.
