Summary of Actions Taken by the Board on December 9, 2008


Mr. Kaechele led the Board, staff, and public in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.


Rev. Stephen J. Crane, Pastor, Poplar Springs Baptist Church, provided the invocation.


The Board approved the minutes of the November 25, 2008 Regular and Special Meetings.



Mr. Hazelett recognized the County government Christmas Mother Program Chair, Lisa H. Orlosky of the Department of Information Technology.  He advised that Mrs. Orlosky’s Co-Chair, Juliana Major of the Division of Recreation and Parks, was unable to join Mrs. Orlosky because of another commitment.  On behalf of Henrico County general government and public school employees, Mrs. Orlosky presented a ceremonial check in the amount of $26,500 to the 2008 Henrico Christmas Mother, Karen W. Moore.  Mr. Hazelett noted that new bicycles and a portion of other items provided by the County’s general government employees were on display at the Glen Echo Building.  Earlier in the day, donated items collected at the County’s Government Center were moved to the Christmas Mother program warehouse on Dabbs House Road, where a reception was held.  Mr. Hazelett referred to the fantastic effort at the warehouse in getting the donated items ready and able to go for distribution. 


Mrs. Moore announced that 1,800 families applied this year for assistance from the Henrico Christmas Mother, a record number and a 12 percent increase over last year.  The Henrico Christmas Mother program will be assisting 1,650 families (5,000 individuals), including 2,800 children and 700 senior or disabled adults.  Mrs. Moore remarked that the program could not possibly achieve its goal of providing new clothes, toys, books, and food to program recipients without help from the whole community.  She thanked all of the wonderful Henrico citizens who have donated money, gifts, time, and energy to the Henrico Christmas Mother.  Many businesses and individuals have sponsored families, delivered gifts, or made monetary donations, while hundreds of volunteers have worked in the warehouse sorting cans of goods, setting up, and shopping with recipients.  Mrs. Moore also acknowledged the wonderful support the program has received from the County government and its employees, including use of the Dabbs House warehouse and fabulous fundraising activities held over the past month.  She commented that the toys and gifts on display were tangible signs of the caring and generosity of all of the County’s employees.  Mrs. Moore thanked Mrs. Orlosky and Ms. Major for their enthusiasm and terrific leadership in this effort.  She pointed out that the County’s schools collected more canned goods than ever, translating into well over 60,000 meals that will be provided for recipients, and also collected toys, bicycles, and money.  Mrs. Moore has loved being the Henrico Christmas Mother, is proud to be a Henrico resident, has met many caring and generous people throughout the County, and has found this experience to be heartwarming.  Mrs. Moore thanked the Board for its continued support of the program and offered wishes for a very happy holiday season. Mr. Kaechele added that the Board wanted to thank Mrs. Moore and all of her hundreds of helpers for the great job they do for the citizens of the County. 



Mr. Kaechele recognized Melodie Martin from the Richmond Times-Dispatch and Tom Lappas from the Henrico Citizen.
