The Board approved the minutes of the November 10, 2009 Regular and Special Meetings.




At the 75th annual conference of the Virginia Association of Counties (VACo) held in Bath County earlier this month, county officials who were in attendance had an opportunity to visit the Virginia War Memorial Educational Foundation's exhibit booth. The Virginia War Memorial's mission is to Honor Our Veterans, Preserve Our History, Educate Our Children, and Inspire Patriotism in All. Created by the Virginia General Assembly and dedicated in 1956, the War Memorial was designed to honor those Virginians who paid the ultimate sacrifice on fields of battle since World War II while protecting our freedoms. The Memorial's Shrine of Memory contains on its glass and marble walls the engraved names of 11,638 Virginia heroes who lost their lives while fighting in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and Desert Storm. Efforts are currently underway to include those Virginians killed as the result of hostile actions in the War on Terrorism. At the request of the Foundation's Executive Director, the list of Henrico citizens whose names are inscribed on the Shrine of Memory were entered into the public record of this meeting to ensure that the sacrifices of these citizens who gave their lives will not be forgotten.


Mr. Kaechele has received a service award from VACo congratulating him for 30 years of dedicated service to county government. On November 8, 2009, during VACo's annual conference, VACo President Donald L. Hart, Jr. recognized Mr. Kaechele for achieving this milestone. Mr. Kaechele has served on the Board of Supervisors since 1980 and is the only member of the Board since the County Manager Form of Government was adopted in 1934 to have been elected to eight terms. On January 1, 2004, he earned the distinction of being the longest serving member of the Board on record. Mr. Kaechele has served eight terms as Board Chairman since 1983. He also served four consecutive terms on the VACo Board of Directors from 2000 to 2008, the maximum allowed under VACo's bylaws. Mrs. O'Bannon, who is currently a Region 3 representative on the VACo Board of Directors, presented Mr. Kaechele with this special award and paid tribute to Mr. Kaechele on behalf of the Board of Supervisors.


Mr. Kaechele recognized Will Ericson from Boy Scout Troop 772, sponsored by Discovery United Methodist Church, who was observing the meeting to fulfill a requirement for the Citizenship in the Community Merit Badge.

Mr. Kaechele acknowledged the recent passing of the wife of Delegate Riley Ingram. A funeral service for Mrs. Ingram was held on November 21, 2009. Mr. Kaechele noted that the Board's hearts go out to Del. Ingram and his family on this untimely death.
