The annual Chocolate Lovers Festival valentine this year features the original Fairfax High School building, drawn by Fairfax artist Jackie Liedl.
Each valentine includes a coupon for five $1 pogs for use at the Taste of Chocolate, which takes place Feb. 1-2, 2014 in Old Town Hall, 3999 University Drive. The limited edition valentines cost $5 through Jan. 31, 2014. If supplies last, valentines will be sold for $7 during the festival at the Taste of Chocolate in Old Town Hall.
The original Fairfax High School building was constructed in 1935 on Lee Highway (now Fairfax Boulevard). Student growth and technological advancements led to the construction of the "new" Fairfax High School facility on Old Lee Highway and Rebel Run in 1972. Currently, the building houses Paul VI High School.
