June "County Magazine" Covers a Grand Re-Opening, Pool Safety and Responsible Fatherhood

 

Tune in to Fairfax County Government cable Channel 16 in June for the latest edition of “County Magazine” and see how residents of the Providence District celebrated the recent re-opening of the James Lee Community Center. Channel 16 was on hand for the grand re-opening celebration and will bring you the sights and sounds of the ceremony where hundreds of neighbors welcomed the center’s opening and enjoyed children’s games, live entertainment, refreshments, presentations and tours of the facility.

The James Lee Community Center’s expansion and renovation were financed by the Fairfax County Redevelopment and Housing Authority and included the purchase of five additional parcels of land to construct the improvements. The center was closed in 2001 for renovations and now includes the 250-seat James Lee Playhouse, two gymnasiums, a kitchen, and meeting rooms for community activities and events. The facility has expanded from 34,400 square feet to 57,400 square feet.

The Memorial Day holiday also signals the opening of swimming pools throughout the region and “County Magazine” will focus on how the Health Department works with local communities to keep swimming pools safe during the summer months. Also featured on the June program is the Responsible Fatherhood program through the Fairfax Pre-Release Center, which provides inmates with the skills they need to become better fathers.

“County Magazine,” with host Gail Eskew, can be viewed on cable Channel 16 each Monday at 7 p.m., Tuesday at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 3:30 p.m. and Sunday at 1:30 p.m. The program may also be viewed on the Internet at anytime during the month through Channel 16’s video-on-demand service at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/dtcs/channel16/vstream.htm.
