Greetings from the Sully District

Greetings from the Sully District

Welcome to the Sully District. I am your Sully District supervisor, Kathy Smith, and I proudly represent our community on the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors. Our district runs from Herndon to Chantilly, to Centreville, and includes many great neighborhoods in between, including Poplar Tree where I live.

One of the great things about living in the Sully District is the array of public events and activities that happen throughout the year. Coming up on Oct. 21, we have the 25th Annual Centreville Day celebration — a local favorite. The event includes family-friendly activities and entertainment.

Our region is also lucky to be close to Dulles International Airport and the associated Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum. If you have not been yet, I highly recommend visiting soon and taking in a movie at its IMAX movie theater. Parking is free after 4 p.m.

Another great advantage in our region is our abundance of public facilities. Fairfax County has an excellent public school system, which includes many wonderful theater programs. I encourage you to attend one of the musicals or plays put on by our students. Every day of the week, there are activities and educational programs at both Chantilly and Centreville Regional Libraries. You can learn about new technologies and join a book discussion group.

The county also has an exceptional park system. The Cub Run RECenter offers an indoor pool, nature program, and a gym. EC Lawrence Park’s 650 acres include: the Walney Visitor Center, athletic fields, trails, a picnic area, and an outdoor amphitheater. The Sully Historic Site, completed in 1799, was home to Northern Virginia’s first Representative to Congress. Guided tours as well as programs and camps happen all year long. The Sully Senior Center is a great place for older adults to exercise, pursue a hobby, and engage with members of the community.

I hope you will find opportunities to get involved in your community. Sully District has representatives on 80-plus boards, authorities, and commissions. If you or someone you know would be interested in one of these positions, please contact my office to inquire about openings.

Furthermore, if you need any help with county services or any other issues, please feel welcome to contact my office any time via email at or by phone at 703-814-7100. We have two community rooms that available at the Sully Governmental Center for free for Fairfax County residents to use. You can reserve our community rooms, and sign up for our weekly e-newsletter online at
