The Friends of the Great Falls Library and the Great Falls Citizens Association announce that the largest meeting room in the Library will be dedicated on Saturday, May 6 at 4 PM, as The Marge Toni Gersic Community Room.
The public is invited to attend this special community award and commemoration ceremony. Marge Gersic was a long-time resident of Great Falls who passed away last year. She is being honored in this way since she was instrumental in obtaining the Great Falls Library for Great Falls. She loved Great Falls and was active in community and county organizations, including as a member of the Fairfax County Library Board and President of the Great Falls Citizens Association.
Speakers who will discuss her many contributions to the community include Dranesville Supervisor John Foust, former Dranesville Supervisor Lilla Richards, Susan Blakely (chief of staff for former Supervisor Stuart Mendelsohn), Karrie Delaney (Chairperson of Fairfax County Library Board), Michelle Miller (Friends of the Library President), Ruth Carver (GFCA board member) and other friends and neighbors. Marge’s son, John Gersic, will also attend as an honored guest. Beverages and light refreshments will be served.
