Stroll the grounds of Frying Pan Farm Park, and you quickly sense that this is someplace special. The 1930s-era working farm and the 1790s Meeting House stand testament to the strength of the human spirit and give us a tangible link to the county’s rich agricultural and Civil War-era past. It is an important slice of history that must be properly preserved to give future generations a clear perspective of their heritage. In July, after a tedious years-long process, Frying Pan Farm Park became the latest Park Authority historic site to become accredited by the American Alliance of Museums (AAM).

As custodians of important publicly owned historical resources, accreditation cements our commitment to carefully preserving each park’s buildings, artifacts and historic records so that future generations can enjoy, appreciate and learn from them. It’s a big deal because only historic sites that meet the AAM’s strict code of ethics, standards and professional practices can be accredited. In many ways, it is the gold standard of stewardship practices and one that Frying Pan and four other Park Authority sites now meet, including Colvin Run Mill, Green Spring Gardens, Sully Historic Site and the FCPA Archaeology Branch.

I am honored to be part of a community that values its parks and historic and cultural resources. It thrills me to be able to give visitors a chance to experience life the way it used to be, when cider was made with a hand-cranked press, butter was hand-churned and cows were milked by hand, one at a time. These teachable moments tie us to history, give us an understanding of what it took for previous generations to survive and foster an appreciation for the modern machinery and other conveniences we enjoy today.

Fairfax Pharmacist Lauds the

Healing Power of Exercise Susan Gillen knows firsthand that life can change in a flash. Just two years ago, the Fairfax pharmacist suffered a debilitating fall that put her in a wheelchair. That’s when the once-active mother of three knew she faced an uphill battle to regain full mobility.

“The muscles were badly damaged, and I had to learn how to walk all over again” she recalled. Her left femur and right shoulder were broken. She endured two surgeries and spent 10 days in the hospital followed by three weeks of painful, inpatient rehab and several weeks of outpatient physical therapy. “Then they sent me to Cub Run RECenter to work on the machines,” she said. Aided by a cane, Gillen says she felt intimidated by all the fitness equipment at first, because she had never been to a gym before the accident. She says the RECenter staff and patrons put her at ease. “People here are very encouraging,” she said. “They’d say, ‘Susan, you’re doing great,’ and that’s what gave me hope.” Though the progress was slow, Gillen had faith in the healing power of exercise. “I started by riding the stationary bike and using the Cybex machines,” she said. “It was a long time before I could start walking on the treadmill really slowly to begin with. I had no stamina then, and I had to build stamina and get my strength back.” Then she headed to the Lazy River in the Cub Run leisure pool. “The Lazy River is awesome,” she said enthusiastically. “When you walk in water, you push against the current and it doesn’t hurt, and the exercise accelerates healing." Once Gillen was stronger, she turned to one of Cub Run’s certified personal trainers for support. “I wasn’t going to push myself because I didn’t want to hurt myself,” she said. “I did about 10 sessions with the trainer, and I made progress because he pushed me past what I thought I could do on my own.” Consistent exercise eventually enabled Gillen to lose the cane, but she still walked with a limp. Determined to regain full mobility, she turned to the fitness director for guidance, bought a RECenter membership and started adding drop-in fitness classes to her routine. She also gave her diet a makeover by avoiding sugar and processed foods and focusing on a more healthful diet that includes lots of fruits and vegetables. In the last year, she lost 25 lbs. while maintaining her muscle mass and metabolism. “My energy level has really picked up,” she said. “I used to do the fitness classes three days a week. Now I’m up to five days per week. Nothing hurts at all, and I feel stronger than I’ve felt in 30 years!” During a recent vacation with her family, Gillen says she had to climb three flights of stairs. When she reached the top, she realized her road to recovery had ended. After two years of hard work and determination, Gillen now walks without a limp. “I’m grateful for all the people who helped me and encouraged me and prayed for me,” she said. “People at the gym have been very kind to me, it’s been such a blessing, and now I can encourage others.”

Senior Personal Training

Features

Improves Quality of Life

Millie Acar is proof that anyone can benefit from exercise at any age. The 88-year-old grandmother has been working out with a personal trainer twice a week at Spring Hill RECenter for the past two years to build strength, improve her balance and assure independent living for years to come. “It’s been great,” she said enthusiastically. “I’ve got a good personal trainer, she’s very patient and she knows what she’s doing.” Prior to each 30-minute session, Acar walks a few laps around the indoor track and does a few warmup exercises before meeting with her certified personal trainer, Maureen Spagnolo. Together they work on strength training, balance exercises and stretching. “Millie’s balance has improved and her strength has definitely improved because we’ve increased the weights and increased the resistance over the course of the last two years,” Spagnolo said. “The exercises vary and we always try to include all the muscle groups in her workout.” To the delight of her physician, Acar’s body composition assessment showed a one-year increase in her muscle mass, and another test showed an improvement in her bone density. Acar says regular exercise has also reduce her age-related joint pain, improved her ability to sleep well and had a positive impact on her mobility. “I think where it has been helping me more than anything is helping me get up and down out of the floor,” she said. “I was getting to the point where if I got down on the floor, I couldn’t get up unless I got way over to the wall where I could pull up on something.” Acar says she would encourage other seniors to exercise regularly to improve their quality of life. “You’re not getting any younger, you know, and if you don’t keep up with your exercise, your muscles deteriorate and you begin to lose it,” she said emphatically. Personal training is available at all nine Fairfax County RECenters and makes a great gift. See a video showing what a typical session is like for Acar at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/recenter/personal-training.

RESIDENT CURATOR PROGRAM Gives

HISTORIC HOMES a NEW LEASE ON LIFE As a U.S. Coast Guard pilot, Steven McCullough is no stranger to search and rescue missions. In some ways, his calling carries into his private life. He started searching for a home after receiving orders for his latest tour of duty in Washington, D.C. and stumbled onto a unique opportunity to rescue Stempson House, a 1930s-era historic property in desperate need of rehabilitation in Lorton.

“The house and grounds spoke to me,” McCullough said as he recalled his first tour of the Park Authority-owned property which once served as the Lorton Reformatory warden’s home. It had been vacant for more than two decades and wild vegetation had taken over the grounds. Despite its rough condition, McCullough saw the potential in this ultimate fixer-upper and signed a years-long commitment to rehabilitate the property as the Park Authority’s first resident curator. “It’s a nice house on great property and in a great location,” he said enthusiastically as he noted the home’s obvious and probable connections to the old prison workhouse. “These bricks in the walkway were most likely made by prisoners,” he said.

The Park Authority Resident Curator Program offers rent-free, long-term leases to qualified tenants in exchange for their financial commitment to rehabilitate and maintain historic properties, which reduces public restoration and maintenance costs. McCullough’s experience includes restoring his last home – a 1930s-era New York farmhouse with a large barn and 50 acres of land. His work to rehabilitate Stempson House preserves an important connection to Lorton’s ProgressiveEra reform ideals and the early 20th century Women’s Suffrage movement.

“I like architecture and brick work and masonry, and if you can save that history with the community, that’s really neat,” McCullough said. In his first year as the Stempson House resident curator, McCullough has resurfaced and painted all the inside walls and ceilings, refinished the hardwood floors and installed new carpet and new windows in the upstairs bedrooms. He also installed a new kitchen including a tiled floor, new cabinets and new appliances. “Getting it to look the way I want it to look is the motivating factor,” he said. “There’s a lot I can do with my free time, and my need is to feel I accomplished something at the end of the day.”

As his second year as resident curator approaches, McCullough plans to paint the house and garage siding and to give the grounds more attention.

“I can envision the fact that this is a county park,” he said. “I want it to look like a park, all cleaned up, with places for people to sit in the park." Ultimately, he wants to open the grounds to the public for outdoor entertainment, such as movies or live entertainment. At that point, the Park Authority’s first resident curator will know he accomplished his personal mission to save an important connection to the past for generations to come.

Discovery Trail Leads to New Bike

Park lovers from infants to octogenarians participated in this year’s Fairfax County Park Authority Discovery Trial Map summer activity, and four lucky visitors whose names were selected in a trailending, drawing received a new bicycle and safety helmet Oct. 8 at the Spokes, Etc. store in Fairfax. This year’s grand prize winners are Mati Lamb, 2, of Burke; Hyorin Choi, 9, of Vienna; Paula Reyes, 17, of Falls Church and the adult winner, Sharlene Ash of Alexandria. They were among more than 1300 people who qualified for the drawing by visiting eight of the 12 featured sites on this year’s Discovery Trail Map. This year’s animal-themed Discovery Trail Map led to more than 20,000 park visits, a 38 percent increase in the number of park visits from 2017. All participants who visited at least eight featured park sites received a prize packet valued at $93, which included tickets to park amusements such as camping, mini golf and boat, train and carousel rides. The bicycle and safety helmet grand prizes were donated by Spokes, Etc. and Trek through the Fairfax County Park Foundation.

Golfers are sure to spot the visible improvements at the newly renovated Oak Marr Golf Complex driving range in Oakton. The 20-year-old facility was regraded this summer to eliminate extreme slopes, and an improved drainage system was installed to eliminate muddy conditions that made it difficult to retrieve golf balls. Other noticeable changes include five lighted, contoured target greens that provide golfers a unique experience from different hitting stations along the range, and the range will look greener overall thanks to a four-inch-thick layer of clean topsoil to support new sod and grass seed. The Oak Marr Golf Complex driving range features 78 hitting stations including 30 that are heated and/or covered. The improvement project was funded through the 2012 Park Bond and other bond-related sources.

Aquatics Aquatics Fairfax County Park Authority aquatic facilities offer something for everyone. From infants to senior citizens to people with special needs, we serve all levels of swimming ability and aquatic interests. Monthly calendars listing pool hours are available at all nine Park Authority RECenters and online at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks.

Follow guidelines when registering

If it has been a month or longer since the student has participated in a swimming lesson, we suggest repeating the previous course completed. If you have any questions about which class is right for you or your child, please contact RECenter aquatics staff. For safety reasons and to ensure students get the maximum program benefits, the Park Authority reserves the right to remove students from an inappropriate class and either issue a refund or place them in a class that better matches their skill level, when possible.

Practice and Repetition are keys to success

Each student progresses at a different speed in learning aquatic skills, depending on a number of factors including class attendance, coordination, water familiarity and outside practice. Students often repeat a level several times before developing the endurance and skill proficiency necessary for advancement. Repeating a level does not constitute failure; it is to be expected. Mastering skills takes time, practice and patience.

Combining course levels

When enrollment is low, course levels may be combined to avoid class cancelations.

U.S. Swimming, Synchronized Swimming or Dive Meets

Please see “High School Swim & Dive Teams” section for information regarding High School Swim & Dive schedules. Please check with your RECenter pool staff or online pool calendar for the most current closure information. In some cases, pools and spas may not be closed for the entire date listed.

www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/recenter/ swimming

Practice Healthy Swimming Habits

Accidents in the pool involving vomit or fecal matter require the pool to be closed to clean and sanitize the water. Under Health Department standards recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), accidents involving fecal matter now require longer pool closure. Prevention is far better than clean up, so please follow the CDC guidelines: • Children (and adults) who have had diarrhea in the last two weeks should not go swimming. • Be sure to use the bathroom before getting into the pool and take frequent bathroom breaks. For public health reasons, standard diapers cannot be worn in the pool. Children who are not yet toilet trained must wear snug fitting plastic pants and/or a swim diaper under their bathing suit. Waist and legs on plastic pants or swim diapers must be snug enough to contain matter that could contaminate the pool. Please check diapers often, and change them in the locker room not on the pool deck. • Adults who have continence issues should refrain from using the pool. • Shower before entering the pool and after using the toilet. • Avoid swallowing pool water or even getting it in your mouth.

SGL Pee Wee Paddler II

Small-Group Lessons RECenters offer small-group lessons, which complement the Park Authority’s other swim instruction offerings: • Private Lessons for students ages 3 to adult offer one-on-one instruction solely based on the student’s skill level. • Semi-private lessons for students ages 3 to adult offer instruction between two participants of similar ability and one instructor. • Small-group lessons offer the same curriculum as the larger, traditional group lessons but to a smaller group of swimmers. Small-group lessons lower student-to-teacher ratios, offer more personalized instruction and more practice time than large-group lessons. Traditional group lessons offer a comprehensive curriculum for participants ranging in age from 6 months to adult.

DONOR PROFILE Joe Challe

Spokes, Etc. Fairfax Store Manager Each fall, something almost magical happens in the Spokes, Etc. Fairfax store. It’s the day store manager Joe Challe presents new bicycles and safety helmets to four lucky winners in the Fairfax County Park Authority Discovery Trail Map drawing. In doing so, he gets to experience pure joy through the eyes of the winners and their families. “A new bike is huge to a kid, and it’s fun to be part of the excitement,” Chaale said enthusiastically as he reflected on past presentations. “Sometimes whole families come in, and the winner’s siblings are funny to watch as all of them swarm around the bike. Their excitement amplifies the joy for everyone!” To a child, a bicycle represents a rite of passage into a new world of possibilities. “A bike is the first taste of freedom for a kid,” Chaale said. “You get to play around the neighborhood without having mom or dad cart you around, and you get to enjoy the scenery in a different way. You see it differently on a bike than you do from a car.” Last year for the first time, adults were eligible to participate in the Discovery Trail Map activity, and Spokes, Etc. teamed up with Trek to donate the children’s and adult bicycles through the Fairfax County Park Foundation. It was especially memorable because the first adult winner asked if he could give his new bike to his wife because she was the only one in the family who didn’t have a bike, and the prize enabled everyone to ride together. In the spirit of family recreation, Chaale says the company was happy to honor the request. “We think the Discovery Trail program is a fun way for families to enjoy parks, and as long as the program exists, we plan to be a part of it,” he said. “We are the local bike shop, and we want to be part of the neighborhood.”

“I Dream of the FLU,” said NO one, ever! Protect your little dreamers. It’s not too late to get your kids vaccinated because even healthy kids can get seriously sick from the flu. When you protect your kids, you are protecting yourself from getting sick. Get a flu vaccine. Wash hands often. Cover coughs & sneezes. Stay home when sick.

Happy Trails. During this holiday season, consider donating your vehicle to help support the mission of the Fairfax County Park Foundation. Not only will you get rid of an unwanted vehicle without the hassle and expense of trying to sell it, you’ll get a tax deduction and the pleasure of supporting your beautiful parks. Donating is fast and easy and vehicle pick-up is free. We accept cars, trucks, boats and motor homes—even if not in operating condition. For more information and to schedule free pick-up service, call toll-free 855-500-7433 or visit www.FairfaxParkFoundation.org

“ My wife, Judie, and I had a car that we’re no longer using. We found vehicle donation programs online and chose the Park Foundation. You guys do great things for Fairfax County parks, so we couldn’t think of a better place to donate our car!” - Frank and Judie pictured with their donated vehicle.

The Fairfax County Park Foundation is a nonprofit tax exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. We support the Fairfax County Park Authority by raising private funds, obtaining grants and creating partnerships that supplement tax dollars to meet community needs for park land, facilities and services. Gifts to the Park Foundation are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by the law.
