Celebration of the Korean Bell

On Saturday the rain held off and we had a wonderful celebration of the Korean bell that was installed last week. Nearly 200 people showed up to be part of this historic moment. Five of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors were on hand for the occasion including: Sharon Bulova, Cathy Hudgins, Penny Gross, Pat Herrity, and John Foust. Other elected officials included State Senator Chap Pertersen, as well as Mark Keem and Vivian Watts from the House of Delegates. Former Governor and Senator George Allen was also there.
