The McLean Fund was established by the Trust of Senator and Governor George P. McLean in 1932. Today McLean Affiliates, Inc., as subsidiary of The Fund, is a vibrant senior living and healthcare continuum serving more than 4,000 people annually on the campus in Simsbury and in their homes in thirteen towns with McLean Home Care & Hospice. The McLean Game Refuge, Inc. is another not-for-profit subsidiary of The Fund that manages the 4,400 acre refuge in Simsbury, Canton and Granby. The Senator’s will specifies that there be up to nine Trustees to oversee The Fund. These Trustees also serve as Directors of The Affiliates and The Game Refuge. Mark Wetzel, Chair, welcomed three new Trustees to the Annual Meeting on Monday, December 17th.
Michael Paine, President of Paine’s Inc., was chair of the McLean Foundation and has been active with the organization and the Game Refuge for many years. “Mike is passionate about McLean’s mission and quality as he has had family who lived in the McLean Home and his parents were cared for by McLean Hospice. Mike is very active in Simsbury and brings wealth of community knowledge along with his business acumen to the Board” reports David Bordonaro, President.
Robert Hensley, Managing Partner, Robert Hensley and Associates, LLC, served on the McLean Foundation since its inception, on the golf committee for many years, and chaired McLean fundraising events. Bob’s wife Sue served as President of the McLean Auxiliary. “Bob brings to the Trustees his expertise on finance and employee benefits along with a commitment to the importance of McLean as a community resource. He has been a tireless member of Foundation committees so we are very pleased to have him join the Trustees,” explained Bordonaro.
Linda Schofield leaves the state legislature this month. Linda has an extensive background in healthcare as a nurse, Medicaid administrator and in healthcare policy. “We could not have found a Trustee better suited to help the Trustees and senior leadership steer McLean’s strategic direction with the evolving healthcare landscape than Linda. Plus she loves the Refuge and understands community needs,” Bordonaro added.
