Alice Lute stole the show at the 2016 Eden Alternative International Conference… in more ways than one.  Not only was she an honored recipient of the 2016 International Eden Elder Award alongside Lucy Kennedy, but she took away the top prize at the fun-filled Eden’s Got Talent.  After winning the Eden Elder Award on the morning of May 4, she took the stage that night for what she calls her “sit-down” comedy routine.  Lute had the crowd rolling and charmed the 4 contest judges, which included Eden Alternative Co-Founder Jude Thomas.  Once she returned home, Alice’s conference accolades got the attention of the local media.

Thank you, Alice, for being a powerful change agent and teaching us about the healing power of laughter.  The learning never ends in the company of Elders.
