Longtime Supporter, Volunteer and Former Board Chair Shares her Story!
Marian Melville, an Aspen resident since 1955, started her philanthropic pursuits in the 1980s after former Easterseals Colorado President and CEO, Francis Steers wanted representation from the mountain communities on the Board of Directors. With six children, Marian juggled life as a mother, owner of a lodge and Easterseals Colorado Board Chair. During her time as Chair, Marian helped oversee the expansion of Rocky Mountain Village Camp, the Talking with Technology program and the ADA laws still in effect today. Her support of Easterseals from then to now is incredible.
Easterseals Colorado is leading the way to creating a Colorado where everyone, regardless of age or ability, is 100 percent included and 100 percent empowered. As a vital resource for all people with disabilities, older adults and caregivers in rural and urban communities across the state, Easterseals provides programs and supports that enhance quality of life and create opportunities for greater independence at home, at work and at play.
