Ethel's Tree of Life, Inc. (ETL) is dedicated to working with young people who live with any disabilities and/or special needs. Special needs can be defined by anything that causes students to have difficulty learning, whether it be a disability or perhaps a situation at home (like a death in the family). ETL students learn to say "I can!" through our many and varied learning experiences! Building Life and Work Skills assists a very vulnerable population prepare for successful adulthood.

Welcome to EthelsTree.org
Are you a teen or young adult who lives with a disability? Have you ever wished that someone would ask you what you would like to do in life? Do you know the things you will need to know in order to live on your own? How about friends after high school? Or, have you thought about college? These are all things that we encourage our students at ETL to think about, set goals about, and, accomplish! We would like to share what we do, ideas from you, and thoughts from our students. Please join us. You can find us on Facebook, too! Our Cause: http://apps.facebook.com/causes/56424?m=3f1cca43 or our Group: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=9156497215&ref=ts
Our trip began with a stop at Good Shepherd Food Bank where we received a tour of the facility!
LOCATION: 3 WILLOW DRIVE SOUTH BERWICK The South Berwick Youth Center, where ETL is housed, sits on the corner of Willow Drive and Agamenticus Drive. Landmarks to look for are the soccer fields past Aggie's Ice Cream and the Lunch Box store.
Then, it was on to Old Quebec! We arrived early evening, settled in at the Auberge Internationale Hostel inside the walls of the Old City, and, went out to explore!
We visited the Lower City after a ride on the funicular, visited the Plains of Abraham and viewed the Snow Sculpture Competition, and, danced outside at Bonhomme's Ice Palace!
Many thanks to our chaperone, Lee Bryant, and to Andrew Bryant for all of the great Carnival Pictures!
Out and about on Saturday, exploring the Bonhomme Ice Palace, Plains of Abraham, trying out the ice slide, and waiting for Bonhomme.
Ethel's Tree of Life would like to thank Bob's Clam Hut and Darren M. Dyer, of F/V Northwestern. Our Board Members, ETL family members and friends, and, our students had a wonderful afternoon !
