Ready to party like it’s 1607? Get the latest news and information by e-mail about next year’s celebrations commemorating the 400th anniversary of the founding of Jamestown.  Fairfax County’s Virginia 2007 Community Citizen Planning Committee encourages residents to sign up for its new e-mail update service.

The committee’s e-mail update service periodically will offer information related to the Virginia 2007 celebrations, both in Fairfax County and statewide. As available, information will be provided about the latest news, events, activities or projects.

To sign up for the service, visit www.fairfaxcounty.gov/email. Look under the “General News and Information” category, and subscribe to “Virginia 2007 — 400th Anniversary Celebration Information.” Subscribers can opt out of the service at any time, and Fairfax County will not use an e-mail address for any other purpose than to send Virginia 2007 updates.

To celebrate Fairfax County’s role in the birth of our nation, the committee will publish an historical anthology. The book will feature vignettes, anecdotal articles, essays and photos that highlight the history of Fairfax County through the last 400 years, since the founding of Jamestown in 1607.

Residents are encouraged to submit items for the anthology. The deadline for submission is June 1, with selections made by Sept. 1. It is anticipated that the volume will be available in early 2007.To learn more about this project or submit an entry, visit www.fairfaxcounty.gov/opa/va2007, or call the Office of Public Affairs at 703-324-3187, TTY 711.

Fairfax 2007 Commemoration

Fairfax County’s Virginia 2007 Community Citizen Planning Committee promotes and publicizes events taking place in the county that commemorate the 400th anniversary of the founding of our state.

Appointed by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, the committee represents the diversity of communities and resources in the county, including the African-American, Hispanic and American Indian communities and representatives from Fort Belvoir, Wolf Trap, George Washington’s Mount Vernon and the Convention and Visitors Corporation.

As an official Virginia 2007 Community, Fairfax County is participating in next year’s statewide celebrationscommemorating the founding of Virginia and our nation. Settled in 1607, Jamestown was the first permanent English settlement in the Americas and is, in essence, our nation’s birthplace.
