On the Road
The Board of Supervisors will recognize Gene Hull, retiring district deputy administrator for the Virginia Department of Transportation. Hull is celebrated for his 50 years of public service on transportation projects in Northern Virginia.

Adoption Awareness Month
The Board of Supervisors will designate the month of November as Adoption Awareness Month in Fairfax County. In the past year, 35 children were adopted through Fairfax County. Observance of this month shows appreciation to the judges, lawyers, social workers and volunteers in the community who help children and families with adoption. The Board of Supervisors urges all residents to reflect on the dreams of children who wait for a permanent family and those families who desire the joys and responsibilities of parenthood.

Kay Larmer
The Board of Supervisors will recognize Kay Larmer, a pioneer in the area of services for older adults, adults with disabilities and their caregivers. Larmer retires after 28 years in the county’s health and human service agencies.

Best of the Web
The Board of Supervisors will recognize staff who were instrumental in the county’s Web site being selected as the 2007 Best of the Web by the Center for Digital Government. Providing information and government services readily available electronically was a driving factor in the award criteria.

AIDS Awareness Day
The Board of Supervisors will designate Dec. 1 as AIDS Awareness Day in Fairfax County. Worldwide, there are more than 40 million people who live with HIV/AIDS. An estimated 45,000 Americans become infected with HIV each year. More than 18,522 Virginians live with HIV/AIDS, and 32 percent of them are between the ages of 30 and 39. The Northern Region of Virginia has seen a 24 percent increase in reported HIV/AIDS cases.
