Employees of Earth Data, Inc. had a special task this holiday season to help For All Seasons set up for their expanded second annual Frosty’s Holiday Village event on Friday, December 2 on the Talbot County Courthouse Lawn at 11 North Washington Street in Easton.
“Earth Data stepped up to help For All Seasons with the setup for this year’s Frosty event and were also kind enough to provide a trailer and generator for our float in the Easton Christmas Parade. For the Frosty event, we have 17 inflatables – three of which are over 10 feet tall – that will fill the Courthouse lawn and Earth Data has been helping us with coordinating them all. One of the biggest challenges we are facing is the inability to stake the inflatables to the ground, so the Earth Data staff has helped us come up with a creative solution with sandbags and water buckets so that whatever the weather does, the inflatables will be secured,” stated Kelsey Trumbull, Philanthropy & Education Associate at For All Seasons.

“The event has grown exponentially. When we first started last year, it was predominantly confined to the front lawn of the courthouse. This year it has doubled in size and spreads out onto the back lawn as well.”
Guests at the free community event strolled through the holiday displays and enjoyed free activities, including professional photos with Frosty, holiday crafts, complimentary cocoa, cider, and winter treats, winter storytime, and a continuous showing of “Frosty’s Winter Wonderland” on the big screen. Even Bumble the Abominable Snowman, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and the Grinch were on hand.
“What better way to get into the holiday spirit than helping the community to set up for their holiday event, seeing everyone’s smile as they enjoy the event is amazing!” added Tina Wright, Administrative Assistant, Earth Data, Inc.
In addition to giving back through its environmental work, the Earth Data Giving Program encourages all Earth Data Incorporated employees to help others. It provides employees with paid public-service hours for volunteer work done to support local charities and others, such as helping feed school kids on the weekends, cleaning hiking trails, supporting elementary school reading programs, and teaching kids about the world around them by using maps and GIS.
