Presbyterian Villages of Michigan Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Lynn Alexander has been named to the Crain’s Detroit Notable Women In Nonprofits list for 2018.

According to Crain’s, the women leaders were nominated by their peers at work and in the community.

Senior living communities are embracing intergenerational programs and experiencing the magic inherent in them.

Almost everyone I know has embraced social media. With the upcoming holidays it will help families stay in touch with each other even if they cannot be with each other in person. For me, nothing compares to a tea party with my granddaughter on FaceTime to tide me over until our next visit.

In last month’s column I shared that due to some minor repair work I spent a little over a week without a car, yet still had things to do and places to be. Heeding the advice of my daughter’s boyfriend, I decided to look for apps I could download onto my smartphone that would help address this dilemma.

Recently I experienced good karma in a way which affirms my belief in caring about others. My grandma was right when she used to say: "What goes around comes around." I have witnessed this phenomena in many ways over the years. In my recent experience I was attending an annual meeting with an organization still somewhat new to me; and more than several attendees reached out to me in an intentional manner to include me and make me feel welcome. I am usually that person that notices when a fellow human being needs to be welcomed so this was a gratifying experience for me.
