Volunteer and City of Santa Clarita Councilwoman Marsha McLean has a long history of commitment to the SCV Senior Center. While a student at College of the Canyons, she chose to produce and narrate a film documenting SCV Senior Center programs. Marsha comments, “Even then I felt a kinship with the Center and their services. I love talking to those who have experience in life and are willing to be active.”
As early as the 1980’s she was an integral part of the SCV Senior Center’s annual Wine Auction, the infamous Celebrity Waiter event, and is a founding member and chairperson of the popular Touch-A-Truck fundraiser. “Touch-A-Truck is a family event that is so much fun!” Marsha shares enthusiastically. “What could be more perfect than a venue that brings all generations together!”
Marsha is a lifelong volunteer. She spent summers as a teenager assisting the Special Children’s Association and later was active with the Boys & Girls Club, the Heart Association, and an endless list of other philanthropic organizations. As a member of Zonta, Marsha spent holidays baking breads from scratch and meticulously packaging them for homebound seniors, ensuring each would receive this special gift.
Marsha has been tireless in advocating for Santa Clarita residents fighting the Elsmere Dump and Cemex Mine and keeping the doors of the old Newhall Library open when the threat of closure loomed because of its small size. She played a role in transforming an empty lot into the meaningful Veterans Historical Plaza. Marsha is grateful to seniors for their support stating, “Where else could I come for people who know what’s going on and will be activists than the SCV Senior Center!”
Marsha says she “is happy the City and County contributed financially to help build a larger new senior center. I think it’s great activities can be expanded enabling everyone in the community to enjoy them.” With a passion for tap dancing, even Marsha has taken advantage of lessons at the SCV Senior Center. Volunteer and Councilwoman Marsha McLean certainly doesn’t miss a beat in promoting quality of life for seniors! ... See MoreSee Less
