The Woman’s Club of McLean marked National Police Week last week by presenting a decorated ceremonial cake to the staff of the McLean district police station, located at 1437 Balls Hill Road, McLean, last Thursday, May 14.
National Police Week dates from 1962, when President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation that designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that occurs as Police Week. This year, Police Week fell on Sunday, May 10 – Saturday, May 16.
Also, on May 9, the Woman’s Club of McLean celebrated the 90th birthday of long time McLean resident Virginia Neal-Newborn with a surprise party. Neal-Newborn had been a successful realtor for many years at Long and Foster and other real estate firms while raising her family, and, later, served for decades as an active and productive member of the Woman’s Club of McLean.
