Mr. Chairman: For more than 25 years, Volunteer Fairfax has been the heart of volunteerism in Fairfax County. The organization has matched the skills and interests of volunteers and donors to the needs of local nonprofit organizations - "helping to build a better community through service." Through a variety of programs and services, Volunteer Fairfax strengthens the capacity of nonprofit members and offers meaningful volunteer opportunities for our citizens.

As you know Mr. Chairman, Providence District has played an active role in contributing to the spirit of volunteerism, in conjunction with Volunteer Fairfax. This year, we participated in its 10th annual VolunteerFest event to showcase the spirit of volunteerism through community driven projects.

The projects sponsored throughout Providence District would not have been possible without the contribution of community leaders, volunteers and sponsors. I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge and thank members of the 2004 Providence District VolunteerFest planning committee. The members are:

Linda Byrne - Friends of Oakton Library; Peter Kelsey - EcoStewards Alliance; Joanne Malone - Providence Park representative; Officers Piper, Yarbrough and Campbell - Fairfax County Police Department: McLean Police Station crime prevention officers; Kevin Warhurst - Greater Merrifield Business Association; Jeanette Stewart - Yorktowne Square Condominiums; Donna Fleming - Human Services Council; Jennifer Cooper and Mantua Kid Care; Marlene Blum - Chair, Health Care Advisory Board; Hope Danielson - INOVA; Veronica Ruiz - Kingsley Commons Family Resource Center; Chip Gertzog - Providence Players; Lee Betton, Eric Kugler and Joyce White - James Lee Community Center Club House; Dave Eckert and Ed Henderson - Tinner Hill Heritage Foundation. Lastly, this year's event would not have been a success without Renee Atkinson and Mary-Litton Thorton of Volunteer Fairfax for facilitating when we came across obstacles. Lastly, to my office for hosting a food drive for the Capital Area Food Bank.

The diversity of the projects that showcased the spirit of volunteerism in Providence District was a learning experience for those who participated and contributed to this process. Thanks again to everyone for a great event.
