The McLean Community Center

Who We Are, What We Do The McLean Community Center (MCC) was built and is funded by residents of Greater McLean for their use through a real estate tax surcharge, the result of a 1970 bond referendum (Small District 1A-Dranesville). Center facilities include the 383-seat Alden Theatre, the McLean Project for the Arts galleries, the Susan B. DuVal Art Studio, meeting and conference rooms, a rehearsal studio and a classroom/commercial kitchen. Local open clubs and organizations use the Center for their monthly meetings with a nominal charge. Center facilities may be rented for private functions such as business conferences, receptions, parties and recitals. District residents and businesses pay reduced fees. Registrations for McLean Youth Athletics and McLean Little League activities are regularly held at the Center, and information on their activities is always available in the lobby. The Center also operates the award-winning Old Firehouse Teen Center, located at 1440 Chain Bridge Rd. in downtown McLean.

DuVal Art Studio. It will add a new board room, a multi-purpose room, a conference room and restrooms. The project also entails the creation of an enclosed outdoor courtyard, which will offer seating and decorative landscaping.

McLean, It’s Our Time to Shine!

INGLESIDE AVENUE RENOVATION UPDATE MCC held a groundbreaking ceremony to mark the start of the renovation of its 1234 Ingleside Avenue facility at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, March 22. Attendees included Virginia’s 34th District Delegate Kathleen J. Murphy, Virginia’s 48th District Delegate Rip Sullivan, Fairfax County Dranesville District Supervisor John Foust, McLean community leaders Robert (Bob) Alden, Carole Herrick and a number of past and present members of the MCC staff and Governing Board. Speakers, MCC Executive Director George Sachs, MCC Governing Board Chair Laurelie Wallace and Dranesville District Supervisor John Foust, detailed the six-year-long process it took to successfully secure the project, acknowledging former Board members, the Friends of McLean Community Center organization, the McLean Project for the Arts, donors Roberto and Gloria Federigan, the Fairfax County Department of Public Works and Environmental Services, architects The Lukemire Partnership and residents of the Dranesville district. In his remarks, Foust said the center was “the jewel of McLean.” He noted the foresight of district residents, who 50 years ago voted to

MCC Is on The Move As you can see in this collage of construction photos, the demolition phase of the project is well under way. Crews have worked to remove some interior wall, ceiling and flooring and have cleared some of the existing landscaping, while working to improve the storm water management system in the area. The building and parking lot are now completely enclosed by a chain link fence and inaccessible to the public.

MCC FY 2019 BUDGET IS TOPIC OF MEETINGS IN SEPTEMBER DRANESVILLE DISTRICT RESIDENTS ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND, SUBMIT COMMENTS

The McLean Community Center Governing Board invites Dranesville tax district residents to attend a Public Hearing on MCC’s FY19 Budget, which will be held at the Center’s Administrative Offices at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 27. The 2019 fiscal year runs from July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019. Residents who would like to speak at the public hearing should call the Center at 703-790-0123, TTY: 711, to have their names added to the speakers’ list. Residents are also invited to attend a meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 12, when the full MCC Board will meet as a Finance Committee of the Whole to work on the details of the FY19 draft budget proposal. The budget outcomes of this 7:30 p.m. meeting will be presented at the public hearing and posted on the MCC website the first week of October. Friends Award recipient Paul Kohlenberger and FMCC President W. Glenn Yarborough, Jr.

Paul Kohlenberger has been named the Friends of the McLean Community Center (FMCC) organization’s 2017 “Friend in Deed.” Kohlenberger is the 26th person to receive this award “with gratitude for outstanding leadership and support of the McLean Community Center.” FMCC President W. Glenn Yarborough, Jr. presented the award at the group’s annual meeting on Monday, June 5. Kohlenberger, who is president of the Greater McLean Chamber of Commerce and of the Historical Society of Fairfax County, is a longtime resident of McLean who is active in a number of community organizations. He has been instrumental in promoting the FMCC through helping establish the group’s website, offering new program ideas, promoting membership initiatives and documenting the Friends history and role in the building of the McLean Community Center (MCC).

In addition, please watch the MCC website for dates of board committee meetings in August and early September when committees will work on departmental budgets in the areas they oversee. The MCC Board will adopt a final budget proposal at its regular meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 25, at 7:30 p.m. The final budget will be approved by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors in spring 2018. For more information, please check the website (www. mcleancenter.org) or call the Center at 703-790-0123, TTY: 711.

In addition, Kohlenberger, a two-term member of the MCC Governing Board, served for three years as the Liaison from the Board to FMCC. According to Yarborough, Kohlenberger has been instrumental in assisting the organization to progress in a number of ways. “Paul always has new ideas to move the Friends of the MCC forward. He goes the extra mile by always making himself available to help—be it day or night. Most of all, Paul’s love and dedication to the McLean community and the Center has always been most evident.” For more information on Friends of MCC or to volunteer, visit www.friendsmcc.com.

McLEAN TRAVELER Gettysburg, Pennsylvania – Eisenhower Farm TUESDAY, OCT. 3

For three days in the summer of 1863, Gettysburg was witness to the greatest battle fought in the United States. This epic struggle began almost by accident on July 1, when a small Confederate scouting party, under the command of General Robert E. Lee, entered the town of Gettysburg looking for shoes. The Southern soldiers ran into General George C. Meade’s Union army and the Battle of Gettysburg would have its beginnings. Four months later, President Lincoln would come here and dedicate this ground where over 40,000 soldiers lost their lives. This group tour will start with a short film at the visitor’s center, followed by an explanation of the restored cyclorama map of the battle and will end with a licensed battlefield guide who will conduct a tour of the battlefield from our bus. Included is a full buffet lunch at historic Dobbin House Tavern, Gettysburg’s oldest and most historic building. Afterwards, there will be a tour of the Eisenhower National Historic Site. Located adjacent to Gettysburg Battlefield, this The Eisenhower den. was the retreat and retirement home of General and President Dwight D. Eisenhower and his wife, Mamie.

8

The Eisenhowers' Gettysburg home.

The interior and furnishings of the farmhouse are circa 1950 and 90 percent of the contents once belonged to the Eisenhowers. This promises to be a great fall day to step back into two totally different time periods in history and enjoy savory home cooking and good company, too. Activity No. 7002.217 $145/$140 MCC district residents, which includes deluxe motor coach transportation, all admissions, a delicious buffet lunch, a guided tour of the battlefield, a morning snack and a driver’s tip. Arrive at pickup/dropoff location* (to be determined) at 7:15 a.m. Bus departs promptly at 7:30 a.m. Bus returns at approximately 7 p.m. Please make checks payable to Excursionaire.

There will be a Christmas Market as well as an Artists of Lewes Gallery open house.

Performances for Youth “PETER PAN” PRESENTED BY DUFFLEBAG THEATRE http://dufflebag.com Saturday, Oct. 28, 1 p.m. at the Old Firehouse, 1440 Chain Bridge Rd. $15/$10 MCC tax district residents For ages 5+. Keeping with the “Alden on the Move” theme, our first children’s performance this fall is reminiscent of a time when actors didn’t have theatres to perform in so they traveled from town to town with only what and whom could fit in their wagon. Dufflebag Theatre’s performance of “Peter Pan” will whisk you off to Neverland with only the set, props and costumes they brought in their trunk. If four actors aren’t enough to tell the story, some of McLean’s youngest residents might even get cast in the show! DOKTOR KABOOM: “IT’S JUST ROCKET SCIENCE” www.doktorkaboom.com Saturday, March 3, 2 p.m. at the Old Firehouse, 1440 Chain Bridge Rd. $15/$10 MCC tax district residents For ages 7+. Doktor Kaboom is an over-the-top German physicist with a passion for science that knows no bounds. Sporting chrome goggles, orange lab coat, motorcycle boots and wicked cool hair, Doktor Kaboom travels the world, thrilling adults and children alike with his explosive comedic style of science experiments designed to involve, excite, educate and entertain!

PG-13*

Friday, Nov. 3, 7 p.m. Yeah, baby! This James Bond spoof was so popular that it spawned two sequels and a whole bag full of quotes. We know this sort of thing is your bag, baby.

Saturday, Dec. 2, 2 p.m. You and your family should come to this special holiday quote-along screening of “Home Alone” because a) Your kids have probably never seen it; b) You need a break from holiday madness; and c) The Alden’s quote-along movies are AWESOME.
