Some members of the Baldwinsville Garden Club made a day trip to Watertown on March 28 where they toured the Roswell Flower Memorial Library. The library, built in 1904 for $250,000, was built by Emma Flower to memorialize her father Roswell Flower, former governor of New York.
The library, which has undergone refurbishment in the past two years, had stained glass in the large dome of the building, as well as other stained glass, shipped to Syracuse for restoring. Club members (from left) are Chris Ritz, Pam Dano, Ingrid, Gerry Lindequist, Joy Swensen, Pat Gray, Melva Neff, Ethel Frost and Emily Triggs.
Earth Day clean-up
The Baldwinsville Women's Garden Club will hold a clean-up event at 9 a.m. Saturday April 18 at the Marble Street Canal Park. The club members will also try to clean up the Gateway Park and the Butterfly Garden.
Bartlett's Tree Service has volunteered again this year to attend the clean-up event and help the club prune trees and clean-up the park. Volunteers to help clean up are welcome. Bring gloves to help clean- up and, if possible, a rake, garden tools and a wheelbarrow. Rain date for the clean-up will be April 25.
