In January 2005, Governor Warner officially recognized Fairfax County as a Virginia 2007 Community. This recognition was an opportunity for Fairfax County to join with other communities across Virginia and celebrate by sponsoring events, programs and projects that honor our history.
Since the Board established the Fairfax County Virginia 2007 Community Program Committee, the 2007 Planning Committee has been meeting and planning for the County’s commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the founding of Jamestown. The committee is composed of 27 representatives of various segments of our community. Some of the items that the committee has worked on are the 2007 Legacy Book and engaging citizens to create America’s Anniversary Gardens.
Therefore, Mr. Chairman, I move for unanimous support to invite the Fairfax County Virginia 2007 Community Program Committee to be recognized and receive a proclamation to commemorate 2007 as the “400th Anniversary of the founding of Jamestown” at the January 8, 2007 Board meeting.
