Tune in to Fairfax County Government Cable Channel 16 in September for the latest edition of “County Magazine” and attend a 9-11 ceremony at the county’s Memorial Grove Garden in honor of citizens who perished during the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. “County Magazine” will also present information and facts about emergency planning, a timely topic as the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors will proclaim September as Emergency Preparedness Month in Fairfax County at its Sept. 13 meeting.
Also included on the September “County Magazine” program, viewers will get a look at the Fairfax County Police Department’s new program aimed at improving the driving skills of teens, learn about the Meals on Wheels program and the rewards of becoming a volunteer, as well as stroll back in time and explore a day on the farm with a trip to Frying Pan Park, one of the last working farms in Fairfax County.
