Greetings! May is Older Americans Month and the Administration for Community Living knows that ‘communities that encourage the contributions of older adults are stronger’! St. Alexius Outreach Ministries wants to recognize the artistic contributions of several of our friends. We have an accomplished photographer, jazz saxophonist, poet and featured in this addition, Dr. Dottie V., an accomplished pianist. Dr. Dottie has performed with many well-known gospel ensembles, taught many a student in the local Chattanooga area and according to Dr. V., she was a former Mickey Mouseketeer! Due to health issues, she’s been unable to leave her home for the past several years, however, as she sits at her baby grand piano, her passion and amazing gift unfolds, our volunteers and staff have been the fortunate recipients of many an impromptu concert. That’s just how this program works, it is in giving that we receive. We welcome you to come and walk alongside our growing team as we continue to build this new ministry serving vulnerable, isolated and lonely older adults.
