The Friends of the McLean Community Center organization has named McLean resident Gay Rogers the recipient of its 2013 “Friend in Deed” award. Rogers is the 20th person to receive this recognition “with gratitude for outstanding leadership and support of the McLean Community Center.” She received a plaque at the group’s June meeting. The center is located at 1234 Ingleside Ave., McLean.
Rogers, who has lived in the Langley Forest area of McLean for 33 years, has volunteered as a member of the board of the organization for more than four years.
Rogers’ involvement in the development of the McLean community has been well demonstrated. She and her husband Woody reared their two daughters in the community and are now the proud grandparents of three grandchildren. Rogers is retired from her job at the Langley High School library where for many years she tutored high school math. As a longtime member of the Langley Swim Club, she now holds the position of club administrator. Also an avid cyclist, Rogers has traveled by bike in the United States, Europe, and Asia.
