Mary Fisher

Core Leader

Beautification Action Team

Mary is one of our many amazing coalition members leading the Beautification Action Team. Rather than us summarizing her thoughts on the Glens and our coalition, this leader bio is going to shake things up a bit. Fasten your seatbelts, because here's a quote directly from Mary herself!: 

"Why do I like the Glens of Dacono? It has become a home with neighbors that care about each other. You can get a wave and a hello even if you don’t know them. This neighborhood is all about helping each other, 'what do you need' and 'how can we help'?

I have lived in the Glens for the last 24 years and joined the Pride of the Glens to do precisely that. We can help so many people with only a few of us. I got involved 3 years ago and have not been disappointed in the goal of making our neighborhood a better place. It’s all about your neighbors".

What a BEAUTIFUL statement from such a insightful individual. Mary truly has a way with words!
