St. Martin’s Episcopal Church You will find the people of St. Martin’s Episcopal Church participating in various community outreach projects. Some are Stephen Ministers who visit others in need, some volunteer with Salvation Army and others with the Williamsburg Parent Cooperative Preschool. Putting faith into action is one of the church goals and church programs reflect that mission. “Believe it or not, St. Martin’s is not a clergy-centered church,” said church rector, the Rev. Shirley Smith Graham. “The people of St. Martin’s are the true treasurers here. They have generous hearts that feel best when they’re serving others. They work in their professions and volunteering to help others.” Smith Graham, who has been leading the congregation since July 2007, said that the dedication of the church members is an inspiration. “They are deeply empathetic to those who suffer, and they have great imaginations for what can be done to help people feel connected with God and each other,” she said. “My privilege, along with the rest of the staff, is that we get to serve alongside them.” Smith Graham moved to Williamsburg from Alexandria, where she had served at Historic Christ Church. She stepped into a ministry here that had been occupied for three decades by the Rev. Pickett Miles. She said his legacy is ever-present in the church and within the people. “Pickett’s legacy is a blessing to me every day,” she said. “The strengths he built into St. Martin’s are evident. I’ve told him many a time that St. Martin’s wouldn’t be thriving today if he hadn’t been insightful and faithful about establishing good preaching standards, the Bible studies, the healing ministry, the Memorial Garden and gotten the parish kicked off in building the parish hall and offices.” Smith Graham has taken her leadership role to heart and has enjoyed getting to know the people she shepherds and sharing her perspective on the challenges of daily living. “I want to be full of hope and have a personal touch, connecting with individuals and the congregation,” she said. “I hope I’m affirming of folks and challenging, both. My sermons are always based on our readings from the Bible, but truly I preach from peoWWW.WILLIAMSBURGMAG.COM

ple’s lives, using my knowledge of what they’re dealing with to help them connect with God’s blessing for them.” Smith Graham believes in God’s omnipresence and it is her goal to help people realize the deep love He has for each one of His people. “My call is to help people be aware of God’s presence,” she said. “Because that presence conveys blessing, and we become changed by the love of God to be agents of grace and good in our community and our world.” ––Ann Efimetz

Veda McMullen Chances are if you have called the Division of Parks & Recreation for James City County you have spoken with Veda McMullen. The kind voice on the other end of the phone belongs to McMullen who has been helping people for more than two decades. On a daily basis she helps people with a variety of questions regarding the county’s parks, programming and facilities. She’s the go-to person for finding what you need to know. She responds to public and staff requests for information, composes communications through media releases and develops promotional posters and fliers, which highlight various programs. And when she’s not doing that, she may be behind the camera at the county video center coordinating photography and video production for various clients. Her zeal for the job is apparent. “I love the opportunities to work directly with our citizens, to hear their comments on the county and on our services,” she said. “Because so much of my work is generally performed in an office setting, when I have the chance to work with citizens, their passion for community is always wonderful. I feel so proud to live in such a caring and compassionate community.” McMullen’s ease of dealing with people springs from her background in broadcast journalism. After graduating from Virginia Commonwealth University, she spent years in television news and broadcasting. When the job for the county came her way, she thought it would fit well with her expertise. “I knew it would be a wonderful opportunity to visit the print, publications, and graphics aspects of the business,” she said. “I’ve learned so much during my tenure so far.” McMullen said the county’s parks are a wonderful asset and provide families with inexpensive ways to have fun together. “It’s our goal is to encourage youth and families to get outside and play,” she said.

The renovated James City-Williamsburg Community Center will open this month. McMullen is anticipating renewed interest in the popular facility. The center will have new tiling, renovated locker rooms and a new pool pump and filtration system. There will be new membership options and a variety of new ways to use the upgraded facility. “We’re also looking at a variety of promotional options to welcome back existing patrons and to appeal to citizens who have never used our facilities,” she said.“I think the public will find us fun, affordable, convenient, and responsive to their needs.” ––Ann Efimetz

VEDA MCMULLEN Title Communications Coordinator James City County Age 50 How long at job Been working with James City County Government for 21 years. Favorite past time Movies and theatre. If she could change one thing about the world: “Health care. Hardworking, taxpaying citizens should not have the added burden of worrying about paying for health care when they’re sick.” What she sees herself doing in ten years “Hopefully the economy will have flourished and I’ll have retired. I have always wanted to spend my second life praticing communications law or owning my own media services business. I’m now developing my 10-year plan to achieve those goals.”

BASSETT HALL Bassett Hall, a two-story, 18th-century frame house on 585 acres (including woodlands) near the colonial Capitol building, was the Williamsburg home of Mr. and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller Jr. In addition to the main house, the property includes a teahouse and three original outbuildings—a smokehouse, kitchen and dairy–all of which were bequeathed to The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation in 1979 by the Rockefeller family. The house reopened to the public in December 2002 following an extensive renovation that was funded by a generous gift of $2.7 million from Abby O’Neill, granddaughter of John D. Rockefeller Jr., and her husband George. As a result of the renovation, both the interiors and the grounds are much as they were when the Rockefellers lived there during the mid 1930s and 1940s to oversee the restoration of the Historic Area. Of particular note is Abby Aldrich Rockefeller’s eclectic collection of 125 pieces of folk art, including weather vanes, chalkware and American pottery—pieces that Mrs. Rockefeller was among the first in the nation to collect.

Colonial „ CW celebrates the 30th anniversary of African American programs 2009 marks the 30th anniversary of Colonial Williamsburg’s African American programs. In 1979 Colonial Williamsburg introduced pioneering new programs to interpret the lives of the more than 50 percent of the town’s population who were free and enslaved African Americans at the time of the American Revolution. To celebrate 30 years of dedication to telling this story, a variety of special events and programs are being planned for 2009. As in past years, the lives of enslaved Virginians are detailed in several programs offered at Great Hopes Plantation, the Peyton Randolph House and during Revolutionary City. At Great Hopes Plantation guests watch the re-creation and evolution of an 18th-century plantation, learn about enslaved African Virginians and their masters, and learn how they lived and worked on a typical middle-sized rural Virginia farm. While Great Hopes focuses on the rural life, the Peyton Randolph House site in the middle of Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Area presents the life of The evening program explores the diverse African Americans in the 18th-century capital of Virginia.

Guests use them to learn about enslaved residents of the house, like Johnny, Peyton Randolph’s manservant, who struggles with the question of staying on property or joining other enslaved people fighting with the British for their freedom. Revolutionary City and Revolutionary Stories offer guests an opportunity to interact with free and enslaved Virginians as they debate and discuss the events leading up to American independence. In Revolutionary City visitors can gain insight into the perspectives of residents such as Baptist preacher Gowan Pamphlet and Eve, an enslaved servant at the Randolph house. Revolutionary Stories provide further opportunities to understand the impact of the Revolution on the African American population through programs such as What Holds the Future in which Lord Dunmore’s slaves ponder their At Great Hopes Plantation, guests follow an interpreter through the fates moments before being taken to auction. reconstructed 18th-century rural Day programs that discuss 18th-century African American life include Workin’ the kitchen, slave quarters and Soil, Healin’ the Soul.

Colonial „ This Month… CW’s Revolutionary City enters fall season The fourth season of Colonial Williamsburg's highly acclaimed Revolutionary City® programs returns to its autumn schedule beginning Monday, Aug. 31. The two-hour, outdoor dramatic presentation of interactive stories and events begins at 3 p.m. each day in the easternmost block of Duke of Gloucester Street nearest the Capitol. Ticketed guests are invited to follow their Revolutionary-era counterpart’s transition from subjects to citizens and make connections between those Revolutionary changes and issues facing citizens today. The seasonal change also shifts presentation times for programs that complement the Revolutionary City experience, including “Revolution in the Streets.” “All Cause of Danger,” the companion drama to “Collapse of Royal Government, 17741776,” is presented on the Courthouse steps at noon Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. “Blessings of Liberty,” a prelude to “Citizens at War, 1776-1781,” explores the tensions created by revolutionary fervor at noon Wednesdays and Fridays at the Courthouse of 1770. These scenes from “All Cause of Danger” and “Blessings of Liberty” will begin on Sept. 22. Revolutionary City At Night provides evening enhancements to the guest experience. Revolutionary City programs are designed to provide timeless parallels between the lives of modern Americans and corresponding 18th-century events and issues. The Revolutionary City experience portrays the years 1774-1781 when the townspeople of Williamsburg progressed from subjects to citizens amidst momentous, world-changing events. It is a uniquely American story, presented where the events actually happened. For more information, call 1-800-HISTORY.

Fall family fun Riverfront beaches, Farmers Market You can still get some summer fun in during the last days of the season. The James and York Rivers are wonderful places for families to enjoy. There are various beach areas along the Colonial Parkway where you can park and enjoy the water. It’s especially nice in the evening after the hot sun has gone down some. Families can swim, walk, play Frisbee or other games along the river fronts. The rivers are great place for kids to wade and collect shells along the beachfront. People love to bring their dogs to the waterfront to let them swim. It’s free, in our backyard and provides for a great time out. And don’t forget the Williamsburg Farmers Market.

AROUND TOWN

Signs point to history If you take a ride down the Colonial Parkway, you can get a glimpse into the history of the area.

The marker states that the first African Americans in British Colonial America, likely landed around 1619, possible at Jamestown.

You will find several markers along the road from Jametown to Yorktown recounting information regarding the area. One marker is located recounts the story of the earliest African American national radio and TV minister the Elder Lightfoot Solomon Michaux. He purchased the land surrounding the marker in 1936 with a dream to establish a farm and national memorial to the progress of African Americans in the country. The dream became reality, as the Gospel Spreading Farm is located just down the parkway from the sign.

Because it is becoming more and more difficult to find authentic reproduction textiles, hardware, passementerie and qualified fabricators, Colonial Williamsburg will provide a venue for well-respected vendors and booksellers. For more information, contact the conference registrar at 800-603-0948 or www.history.org/conted. Admission. 800-HIS-TORY, symposium registration 757- 220-7255, www.history.org.
