McLean Center Cancels All Events for April & May

At a special meeting of the McLean Community Center (MCC) Governing Board last week, the Board unanimously voted to cancel all Center-sponsored activities in the months of April and May, including McLean Day 2020. The action came in response to the recommendations of MCC Executive Director George Sachs, who cited the ongoing Centers for Disease Control and Fairfax County Health Department guidelines concerning large gatherings in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. McLean Day, the center’s largest event, typically draws approximately 10,000 participants.

Absentee voting for the MCC 2020 Governing Board Election is currently underway and will continue through 5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 13. The McLean Day in-person voting, stipulated in the Center’s Memorandum of Understanding, will be held at MCC (1234 Ingleside Ave., McLean) as scheduled from 10:30 a.m. — 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 16.
