The Arcadia Chamber of Commerce has named Alice Wang the 2012-2013 Citizen of the Year.
Alice has been one of the most active volunteers in the community for many years. In the past year alone she is Vice President of the Arcadia Public Library Foundation; co-chair of the Assistance League of Arcadia’s Operation School Bell; Public Relations Chair for the Tzu Chi Foundation’s MWLA; a City-appointed Commissioner for the Arcadia Historical Museum, and on the board of the Arcadia Historical Museum Foundation.
She also continues to devote hours each week to the Arcadia Police Department’s Volunteers in Patrol Service program and remains a very active member of the Arcadia Chinese Association, for which she was President in 2007-08.
If that isn’t enough, she is volunteering for the Foothill Unity Center and is being considered for a board seat there this year.
