Fantastic, It's February!
Hello everyone, 

Last month was certainly jam packed with the full spectrum of news, and events—locally and nationally. Our stay-at-home order has finally been lifted so we can begin to venture out a bit more -check the Town’s website on resources and links for all things COVID-related! And so here we are in February, a sweet time to remember those we love as Valentine’s Day rolls around. We hope you are feeling loved and nurtured; if you need anything a volunteer might be able to help with, don’t forget our Fairfax 1 to 1 Volunteer Match program. May your February be fabulous!
