Winter-Spring 2018 Program Guide

Taking Our “Show” on the Road A Letter from Our Executive Director George Sachs As Executive Director of the McLean Community Center, it’s my honor to greet you on behalf of the Governing Board and staff and to keep you abreast of what’s happening at the Center. This new platform will assist me in doing just that. As many of you know, the Center’s Ingleside Avenue facility is currently under renovation. This makes for exciting times as we work to continue offering Dranesville district residents our programs and services at other convenient locations. In essence, we have “taken our show on the road” and nowhere is this more evident than in the many offerings we have planned for the upcoming winter and spring sessions.

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 383seat 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.

2

The Center’s flagship day trips and tours program, The McLean Traveler, is offering trips to the Vermeer exhibition at the National Gallery, the Philadelphia Flower Show and to Monticello and Highland. In the true spirit of continuing to offer quality performing arts experiences The Alden staff has designed a unique new program to allow our performing arts-loving residents to see some of the hottest offerings in the area and get an exclusive, insider’s view of these local productions by the people in the know. Instead of dinner and a movie, it’s dinner, a live performance and access, access, access. What about opportunities for our children and teens, you ask? In the coming months, the staff of the Old Firehouse journeys to an ever-expanding list of local destinations for the Friday Night, Teacher Workday and Spring Break trips they oversee. Parents, we know you depend on these entertaining options that can help you cope when school is closed for days or weeks. As we move into a new year, I look forward to seeing and serving you in 2018. Here’s to a Happy and Prosperous New Year!

Center News

CENTER NEWS McLean, It’s Our Time to Shine!

Renovation Moves Ahead on All Fronts

As we officially enter the winter season, work continues at a steady pace on the McLean Community Center’s Ingleside Avenue facility. The good news? The renovation project remains on time and within budget! The beautiful weather we experienced this summer allowed contractor Sorensen Gross Construction Services to perform extensive work on the building’s exterior, clearing the landscape and installing elements of the new, more efficient storm water management system. A County arborist continues to monitor the health of the trees and shrubs on the property and will arrange for any needed treatments, prunings or removals.

Demolition of the interior also advanced further with the exterior lobby wall being opened to what will be the new enclosed courtyard. A Geopier® ground improvement system has been mobilized to the courtyard area and is working to help establish the foundation for the additional meeting rooms. The first step in this process was having Virginia Dominion Power relocate the Center’s large, green transformer to its new home at the rear of the Community Hall. Ultimately, the current transformer will be replaced by a newer version that will support the newly expanded center. An evaluation of the new Center’s information technology infrastructure needs also has begun. A center-wide public address system, security cameras and access keypads will all play a role in the planning. For more information, visit www.mcleancenter.org, or call the Center at 703-790-0123, TTY: 711.

Center News An MCC Staffer in the Spotlight Katie Mara Fedora, Registrar

When you come to MCC’s Registration Office to sign up for a class or activity, the smiling face most likely to greet you will be that of Registrar Katie Fedora. Katie replaced Barbara Smoot in this high-profile position in September 2016, so you may think she is a relatively new employee. You would be wrong. “My MCC career began at the age of 16!” says Fedora. I started out as a Counselor in Training at Camp McLean and worked my way up to Assistant Director. In addition to my summer positions, I also worked in the Youth Activities department for about eight years.” In 2011, she became a Recreation Aide, working at the Center’s front desk in the evenings. “During my years at MCC, I have worked in almost all the departments,” she adds. Fedora grew up in McLean and attended McLean High School, where she was a competitive cheerleader. She also cheered while enrolled as a student at Bridgewater College. When she returned to the area, she coached the JV and Varsity cheerleading team at McLean High

School with her best friend, Sarah Krawchuk. In addition to her job, Katie is busy raising her two children, 16-year-old daughter, Madison, and 14-year-old son, Griffin. A third “child,” this one with four furry paws, named Moxie, also takes up some of her time. In her current position, her biggest responsibility is to register customers for MCC-sponsored classes and activities, as well as entering, updating and maintaining the information in the Center’s online registration system, Active.net. If a class must be canceled, she is the person responsible for notifying patrons. “Ultimately, I am the one who will call with the bad news.” Fedora says, “The best part of my job is getting to know our customers every day as they come and go. I love the interaction I have with the public, and the kids that come in for our children’s classes are the best! I enjoy the fact that I never know what the day will hold. Every day is different, and I never know what I am in store for from day to day.” While MCC is in its temporary location, Fedora can be found at the front desk of the programming space in McLean Square Shopping Center, 6645 Old Dominion Dr. She can be contacted at registrar@mcleancenter.org or by calling 703-744-9365.

McLean Community Center Mission Our Core Purpose The mission of the McLean Community Center is to provide a sense of community by undertaking programs; assisting community organizations; and furnishing facilities for civic, cultural, educational, recreational and social activities apportioned fairly to all residents of Small District 1, Dranesville.

Vision The McLean Community Center is a “hub” for McLean’s Community!

Our youngest and most precious patrons need no introduction to “Ms. Patti,” as Patti Papworth has been teaching Music Together at MCC since 2003. A native of Salem, Ore., Papworth is one of seven children. She has been performing since she was eight years old and holds a B.A. degree in Vocal Performance from Utah State University. Says Papworth, “I think the most powerful thing about teaching is seeing how kids learn and grow. I have always had music in my life and I also have a deep love for children, so when I came across this program, I knew it was a perfect fit for me. It’s amazing anytime I run into parents who give an update on their children—that they are now playing instruments or are involved in music programs—those are happy moments.” Her involvement in music is not limited to teaching at MCC. She has a private piano studio and directs a regional, 60-member church choir. In her free time, she enjoys being outside, playing piano, cooking and helping people with interior design and staging. Papworth says MCC is a wonderful gathering place that fosters friendships and understanding. “I love how it brings all cultures and lifestyles together. I have classes where every child or adult is from a different area of the world. It adds so much to our experience to be able to enjoy and learn from each other.”

Presidents Day in April Albemarle County, Virginia Tuesday, April 17

Once, there were two famous men who were good friends, both presidents of the United States, who were born in Albemarle County, Virginia, and lived just a short distance from one other. James Monroe, our fifth president, lived at his home named Highland for 25 years. It was Thomas Jefferson who encouraged Monroe to purchase Highland, which was adjacent to Jefferson’s home, Monticello. Unfortunately, due to increasing debt, Monroe was forced to sell his beloved estate in 1825. Fittingly, the home is now owned and operated by Monroe’s alma mater, the College of William and Mary.

Ash Lawn - Highland, home of President James Monroe, in Albemarle County, Virginia.

Our guided tour consists of the house and any additions that Monroe made. Just recently archaeologists discovered the foundation of a much larger house now presumed to be Monroe’s home.

Lunch will be in the Old Mill Room of the Boar’s Head Inn, which is a premiere resort just outside of Charlottesville. The restaurant was built from timbers of an old abandoned gristmill dating back to 1834 and our buffet lunch offerings will be of delicious regional cuisine.

View of Monticello’s west front, in Charlottesville, Virginia .

Monticello is our last stop of the day because there is so much to explore. Jefferson began creating and building Monticello at the young age of 26 and modeled it after the designs of the Italian Renaissance architect, Andrea Palladio, who Jefferson greatly admired. For Jefferson, Monticello was an ongoing project. Started in 1772, this grand estate started out as a plantation house but after Jefferson’s trips to Europe as Secretary of State, many of the classical buildings of Italy and France influenced his designs. The outbuildings, slave quarters and gardens may also be visited. This is a day that takes a rare glimpse into the lives of two presidents who helped shape our great nation. Do not miss this opportunity to learn about their lives and enjoy a delicious lunch at the famed Boar’s Head Inn. Activity No. 7001.318 $160/$155 MCC district residents, which includes deluxe motor coach transportation, admission to Highland and Monticello, buffet lunch, a morning snack and a driver’s tip.
