In Tribute - Mary Ann Chasen


Our relationship with Mary Ann Chasen started in 1990 at Burch Oil's meeting room. John Parlett was starting a program in St. Mary's County called Christmas in April. He guided us for the first few years and saw in Mary Ann someone that would take the organization to the next level. Mary Ann's position with Christmas in April grew immensely over the years. She has been noticed nationally the last few years at the Rebuilding Together conferences as an Execute Director and Board Member that ran their program with success and smoothness. She was sought after at these conferences for her wisdom. Because of Mary Ann, Christmas in April*St. Mary's County, Inc. is a model affiliate. She was a woman who touched, helped, inspired and stood up to a lot of people. She gave great strength to volunteers and fellow board members. Christmas in April*St. Mary's County, Inc. will never be the same without Mary Ann, but we will continue to thrive and we will always honor her. ​



Christmas in April St. Mary's County, Maryland, Inc. in partnership with the community, rehabilitates the homes of low-income homeowners, particularly the elderly and disabled, so that they may live in warmth, safety, and independence. We also provide help through work on community projects in St. Mary's County.​
