UUH OUTREACH a service to the Northwest community Celebrating Older Americans Month:  Blazing Trails with Alice Nothing stops Alice from going places and doing what she wants. Her life reflects May’s Older American  Month’s theme, “Blazing a Trail”. Throughout her life, Alice has blazed trails with her active and healthy lifestyle.  On any day you can find Alice out and about. She knows what’s happening at local community centers and around the city.  She has taken Spanish lessons and learned about social activities and healthier lifestyles at    UUH Outreach. When not in classes Alice volunteers with community organizations and, for over nine years,    has mentored students through Temple’s Family Friend program.  During election years, she works on political campaigns. Alice’s computer skills help her research an inexhaustible supply of events and activities as well as great bargains in food and clothing. When she wants more help, Alice turns to UU House Outreach for specific information. Look around at a lecture, concert or movie and you’ll probably see her there. All of this activity is more amazing because Alice stopped driving several years ago. She relies on buses and trains and, when necessary, she gets rides from friends. Alice’s resourcefulness probably comes from her career choices. Some of her jobs included several customer service positions as well as being a reporter for a local newspaper. Not only did she obtain a degree in journalism, but she also earned a Master’s degree in Health Education. After getting her Master’s, she worked for AmeriCorps giving public classes on health and nutrition. Alice obtained both of her degrees while working full- time and taking night classes.  Born and raised in West Philly, Alice now lives in Germantown with her cat, Buddy. Alice is ready to blaze another trail. She is researching a way of getting to spring training in Florida and watch her favorite team, The Phillies.
