Braddock Road Maintenance Partnership
The Board of Supervisors will recognize the Braddock District Council of Community Associations, the Fairfax County Sheriff’s Office, Delegate David Bulova and Delegate Dave Marsden for their efforts to improve the appearance and maintenance of Braddock Road. Their commitment to beautify the area has resulted in plans for landscaping, efforts to keep the corridor trash-free and assistance to the Virginia Department of Transportation’s road maintenance program from the Adult Detention Center’s Community Labor Force.

James Martin
The Board of Supervisors will recognize James Martin for 25 years of safe service to Fairfax County. Martin, a heavy equipment operator at the I-66 Transfer Station, Department of Public Works and Environmental Services, has logged more than 1.65 million miles with an unblemished driving record. He is the first agency employee to reach the 25-year safe operator status.

Doggie Dip
The Board of Supervisors will recognize the Burke Centre Conservancy for the success of its first annual Doggie Dip. In conjunction with the celebration of its 30th anniversary, the Burke Centre Conservancy hosted this event not only to educate the community on important pet-related issues, but raise money for the purchase of canine bulletproof vests for the West Springfield K-9 Unit, which serves Burke Center. Within three hours $500 dollars was raised.

Impacting the Lives of Youth
The Board of Supervisors will designate January as Mentoring Month in Fairfax County. Mentors offer valuable encouragement, motivation and hope for youth by providing a role model through matching a caring adult with a child to provide guidance and build confidence, stability and direction so that young people may make positive choices. Residents of the county are urged to volunteer as a mentor and promote awareness, involvement and support for the mentoring of all youth.

Westfield High Bulldogs Capture Title
The Board of Supervisors will recognize the Westfield High School football team for winning the 2007 Virginia State Championship and completing the season undefeated.
