Summer 2018 Program Guide

Springing Into A Summer of Fun A Letter from Executive Director George Sachs 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, a multipurpose classroom and catering 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. The Center also operates the award-winning Old Firehouse Teen Center, located at 1440 Chain Bridge Rd. in downtown McLean.

As the spring and summer seasons arrive, the McLean Community Center Governing Board and staff are welcoming the change of seasons with a multitude of activities—all for you to enjoy. As you can see on the cover, it is almost time for our largest annual event, McLean Day. As we welcome more than 13,000 visitors to Lewinsville Park, let me encourage you to take a few minutes as you enter the park to vote for candidates who are running for seats on our Governing Board. Your vote is vital to the success of our mission to meet the needs of members of our community. These candidates who volunteer to serve on the board need your input and support as they seek to represent you. Please take the time to cast your ballot or vote by absentee ballot if you cannot attend McLean Day this year. Detailed information is listed on pages 3– 5. Speaking of volunteers, in February we held the annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon to honor and celebrate our wonderful volunteers. See the article on pages 5 – 6. We deeply appreciate our many volunteers. As a matter of fact, our volunteers are critical to the function and operation of the center. We could not do what we do without their continuing support. I want to take this opportunity to express a heartfelt and huge “Thank you!” to the many volunteers who have given their time and talents to ensuring our success. I hope you and your family will plan to join us in the coming months for some exciting activities. Our summer camp programs and classes offer your children a wide array of enriching experiences. The Alden’s free summer concerts are family-friendly and they’re a great place to visit with your neighbors. The annual July 4th Independence Day Celebration and the Old Firehouse Block Party in August are other summer fun options. The Governing Board, staff and I are looking forward to returning to the Center soon. Our Ingleside Avenue renovation project is progressing well and we hope to be returning to our home soon. See the article on page 7 for more details. Best wishes for a happy and healthy spring and summer,

Carole Herrick

McLean Community Center opened in 1975; thus, it has served residents of Small District 1A for 43 years. It is the community’s jewel. Among its many features, the center provides community information, classes, lectures, meeting space, a kitchen, the Susan B. DuVal Art Studio, the MPA gallery, the Alden Theatre and a teen center. Years ago, I served three terms on the Governing Board, followed by Friends of MCC. Soon a more modern center will open. I hope to be the connection with the vision of those who created the original center and those providing a vision for its future. Email: cherrick1@aol.com

A life-long McLean resident and sophomore at Langley, I’ve been attending MCC programs since I was born—tagging along with my siblings to Music Together class. Redeemer Lutheran Church and my family taught me the importance of giving back and sports taught me the value of working together as a team. I work at McLean Hardware, play Langley Field Hockey, JV Soccer Captain and elected Class of 2020 SGA representative. I am also interested in being part of the discussion about how to increase youth programming at the Old Firehouse and the newly renovated MCC. Thank you for your vote. Email: mmarkwart@gmail.com

Serena Aurora

I believe that student governors have a special role and should always try to assess issues and decisions from the point of view of other students. Being student governor is about making sure that all perspectives are considered. I want to become a youth governor to learn more about how the community is run and to support the people in it. I have gained many experiences ranging from leading and participating in various committees to holding leadership roles. In all, I want to have a better understanding of the main concerns and policies that affect the children in our community. Email: serenaaurora27@gmail.com

Lauren Herzberg

I am a second-generation McLean resident; I love this town and the people that make it up. McLean High School has fostered my love for field hockey, where I was JV captain and Varsity player, developed my interest in business through DECA and spurred by fascination with the Spanish language. My true passion lies in serving others. I volunteer for Jill’s House, where I provide care for children with disabilities. I pledge to implement my love for service into the McLean Community Center and promote leadership programs to prepare McLean’s youth for the future. Email: lbherzberg6@gmail.com

An MCC Staffer in the Spotlight Danielle Van Hook, Director, Youth Theatre Programs

Eighteen months ago, The Alden welcomed a new Director of its Youth Theatre Programs. Meet Danielle Van Hook. She was hired to fill the position after the retirement of longtime employee Kathy Herr. An experienced theater professional with a love of youth, Danielle has been busy refreshing the performing arts division’s offerings for the “under 18” crowd. An Arts Management graduate of Juniata College, Danielle began her career at the Wolf Trap Foundation’s Institute for Early Learning through the Arts where she worked with teachers to bring artists to area classrooms. Before joining MCC, she worked in the programming and resource development department at the Association of Performing Arts Professionals, the largest service organization for performing arts industry professionals. Her new job encompasses “everything and anything” that The Alden offers for youth and the performing arts, including the family performance series, Alden productions featuring McLean youth,

In presenting the award, MCC Executive Director George Sachs thanked all the Center’s volunteers for their continued support. Of Sanders-Smith he said, “Melanie’s volunteer efforts have made MCC programs better, which ultimately makes our community a better place to live.” For more information, call the Center at 703-790-0123, TTY: 711, or visit: www.mcleancenter.org.

(the) Unruly Theatre Project and other improv programs, the Macdonald Scholarship Competition, summer concerts and the music education program, as well as youth performing arts master classes and workshops. “The best part of my job is getting to know the community! Between the professional artist series for families and our programs for young actors, I get to meet arts lovers of all ages,” she said. Parents have expressed to Van Hook that they are offered improv training at their workplaces and they are happy to see our improv programs being offered to youth. “I see how improv improves students’ confidence, leadership, quick thinking and many other abilities, but it’s even better when parents get excited about the impact.” she says. Working with young McLean actors on Alden-produced shows has also been a rewarding experience. “Participants are sometimes upset when the shows end. This always reminds me of the great impact the performing arts has on the lives of young people and it also speaks to the power theater has to unite us,” she said. On a personal note, Danielle and her husband Travis married shortly before she began her new position. The couple recently added a new member to their family, a Goldendoodle puppy named JoJo. According to Van Hook, “She loves people and is the sweetest bundle of energy.” Look for JoJo (and Danielle) at The Alden’s summer concerts in McLean Central Park this July. You can contact Van Hook at danielle.vanhook@ fairfaxcounty.gov or 703-744-9368.

McLean, It’s Our Time to Shine!

Progress Continues on Ingleside Renovation Project

As we enter the spring, work on the McLean Community Center’s renovation and expansion project continues with easily visible progress being made on the additions. The project remains on schedule and within budget. If all goes as planned, the project may be completed within the new year.

Contractor Sorenson Gross has started to finish much of the site work and recently completed extensive work on the building’s foundation. Reaching this milestone has allowed the construction team to move on to erecting steel beams for the additional meeting rooms and enclosed courtyard, which will be located at the rear of the original building. The layout of the new multi-purpose rooms, extended lobby area and new conference rooms are now visible and allows one to get a sense of what the renovated building will look like

Upon completion of the placement of the steel girders, the contractor will slowly start enclosing the structures and focusing their work on the inside of the building. Interior projects include extending fire protection into the new areas of the building, running electricity and the IT infrastructure to support the new meeting rooms and extending necessary plumbing to the new restrooms.

All the families I work with are amazing and make me feel appreciated and loved. There is never a dull moment when I’m at work. My students never fail to make me laugh and touch my heart with their sweet little souls every day, she said.” In her free time, O’Hare enjoys spending time with her family.

Does your child love hearing a story? Do you see them imagining and living out their favorite story characters? This summer, the McLean Project for the Arts (MPA) is offering art camps that integrate classic elements of art with dramatic themes rooted in multicultural literary myths. Draw, print, collage, paint and construct your way through ancient and modern-day legends and myths from across the world, including Greek, Chinese, European and American traditions. Artmaking will emphasize the drama of each story through elements of art, color and line shape using a wide variety of mediums including drawing, painting and 3-D construction. Live readings, improv sessions and other theatrical activities will prompt campers to discover and interpret these stories.

MPA Art + Storytelling will encourage the integration of art and drama by following a multi-faceted theme throughout the week, incorporating a tactile exploration of literature, culture, and of course, art. While connecting art and drama, your camper will: • Revel in the mythologies of ancient Greek culture through the story of “Daedalus and Icarus.” • Explore the range of medieval literature from “Robin Hood” to Shakespeare. • Discover ancient Chinese culture and the role of heroes and heroines through “The Ballad of HuaMulan,” the ancient legend that inspired the Disney movie “Mulan.” • Experience classic American authors such as Mark Twain and Laura Ingalls Wilder. These week-long sessions will culminate in creative projects bringing to life these myths and legends. Campers of all artistic experience are welcome!

McLean Project for the Arts

Summer Exhibition Schedule The Bullock | Hitt Gallery MPA@Chainbridge April 12–June 2 Opening Reception: Thursday, April 12, 7–9 p.m. Erratic Landscapes: New Works by Artemis Herber

Working with the humble material of recycled corrugated cardboard, German-born, Maryland-based artist Artemis Herber creates massive depictions of space and place. Devoid of people, the works insist on viewer interaction. They strongly suggest a possibly risky entrance into her imagined hybrid environments of abandoned cities, threatening clouds, distant horizons and eternal twilight. These are places that reside within the realm of what Herber describes as “alienated poetry” and to view them is to experience a place that hovers somewhere between the past, present and future.

Artemis Herber, Polyphmus: After Casting Rocks, mixed media on cardboard.

June 14–August 18 Opening Reception: Thursday, June 14, 7–9 p.m. Too Much of Too Much: Overstimulated, Overexposed, Overextended Juried by Laura Roulet, Independent Curator

GRAMMY®-nominated Christylez Bacon is a dynamic member of the hip-hop movement, bringing innovation to an art form already known for mixing urban musical styles.

Outdoor Family Concert Tim Kubart and the Space Cadets www.timkubart.com Sunday, June 3, 5 p.m. Free admission McLean Central Park 1468 Dolley Madison Blvd For ages 3 and older. Tim Kubart and the Space Cadets are helping us welcome summer back to McLean!

When he’s not touring, you can catch Tim every weekday morning on NBC Universal’s Sprout Channel in “Sunny Side Up,” the only live morning show for preschoolers or as the “tambourine guy” with Postmodern Jukebox.

You love movies—maybe you quote them in your everyday life, maybe you get shushed in movie theatres, or maybe you act out your favorite scenes in front of the mirror. This is your type of movie! You can recite your favorite lines all you want, but if you don’t have the movie memorized, we’ve got you covered: there will be a list of famous quotes attached to your box of free popcorn and onscreen subtitles when it’s time to say them. And, in the spirit of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” you can even get a bag of props so you can really get into the movie. School’s Out for Summer Quote-Along Movie Our Audience’s Choice! Vote Now! Sunday, June 10, 2 p.m. Admission is $3 per person/$5 per couple. Popcorn is free. Prop bags are $5 each. Advance purchase at www.aldentheatre.org is recommended. The Old Firehouse, 1440 Chain Bridge Rd. What’s your school personality? Are you more of a summer vacation romance type of person (“Dirty Dancing”)? Maybe you’re a carpe diem type who skips school to have a wild adventure (“Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”). Or perhaps you’re focused on your future and can be seen selling lanyards door-to-door to pay for college (“Napoleon Dynamite”). To celebrate the close of the school year, we’re letting you vote on which quote-along movie will kick off summer. Head over to www.surveymonkey.com/r/ summerquotealong to cast your vote by May 10!

The whole family will be dancing along to their unique vocal arrangements and world-class beatboxing. It’s going to be a ca-mazing! Oh He Dead www.ohhedead.com Sunday, July 15, 5 p.m. Perhaps best described as “rock and soul,” Oh He Dead mixes in healthy doses of classic R&B, funk and folk with deliciously addictive songwriting.
