Mary Ann Young was director of the senior center beginning in 1984. Under her guidance and nurturing, a positive transition took place within the senior center resulting in a family atmosphere in which everyone feels welcome and included in the center activities.
With loving care, Mary Ann excelled in managing the senior center while responding to the needs and interests of the senior citizens, treating each senior as a special person.
Mary Ann’s service to the community ended with her untimely passing on November 29, 1994.
The Blaine City Council renamed the senior center to the Mary Ann Young Center by council resolution to recognize her devoted public service to Blaine and the senior center participants.
