In the early 70's, Alice volunteered at the Middletown Babe Ruth concession stand. She also served as secretary for a short time. Alice was a big fan of the Red Sox. She enjoyed camping around New England especially in the fall. Among her favorite campgrounds were Miles Standish, Melville Ponds, White Ledge, Shady Knoll, Saco on the River and Stone Mountain, GA. Watching the sun set, gardening, crafting and bird watching also brought her great joy. She was an avid reader and has read all the Nicholas Sparks Novels with Danielle Steele a close second.
