Ethel Frost was honored with a tree planting this past Arbor Day.
Members of the Central New York Garden Center Association, along with the Baldwinsville Garden Club members gathered at Lock 24 in Baldwinsville to honor Frost as the Garden Center's Arbor Day Honoree by planting a service berry tree along an entrance walkway.
Frost has been a member of the Central New York Garden Center Association since she joined the Women's Garden Club in Baldwinsville in 1971. She has been a part of their community projects of maintaining village park gardens and barrels.
"Ethel loves gardening and trying to save the environment along with beautifying our world," said Deborah A. Burrows, co-president of the Garden Center.
Frost has widened her circle of friends through garden clubs and the Garden Center and has become extremely active in both groups. Because of this, she has been recognized as competent to serve as both a committee member and as an officer, most recently as co-president of the Garden Center. She gives a lot of attention to details and works hard to accomplish the duties of her position.
Frost's other interests are membership in two local historical associations - Beauchamp and McHarrie's Legacy, plus the Onondaga Historical Association. She is a member of the First Presbyterian Church in Baldwinsville and was an officer and served on various committees there as well as volunteering for the Samaritan kitchen, the food pantry and the Female Charitable Society.
