Alex Pace walked the halls of a local nursing home, stopping at the patients' rooms to visit. During brief conversations she learned many of them were without families or visitors. "It made me feel good to be at the elder home," said the 13-year-old, an eighth-grader. "I wanted to make them smile and feel better. I'm close to my grandparents, and I got to help the elder people without grandchildren see what it would be like to have a granddaughter." Alex's visit was a small part of the extensive community service program offered at Harford Day School, which she attends.
