Park Authority Honors Resource Management Volunteers

From Fairfax County Park Authority:

 

The Fairfax County Park Authority Resource Management Division recently honored dozens of volunteers who provide significant contributions of time and talent to the interpretation and stewardship of Fairfax County’s natural and cultural resources.  Volunteers from across the park system were honored.

Mike Moran, a resident of Vienna, Va., was the recipient of a Volunteer Excellence Award recognizing his work at Colvin Run Mill.  Moran became a volunteer in 2002 and has worn many hats since.  From tour docent to author of the site’s Natural Resource Management Plan, he has been instrumental in the site’s continued success.

THE BIG REVEAL: 1 Volunteer + 19,000 Hours = 1 Extreme Exterior Makeover

THE BIG REVEAL: 1 Volunteer + 19,000 Hours = 1 Extreme Exterior Makeover

Gary Gaal, winner of the Extreme Exterior Makeover from Case Design/Remodeling and Ply Gem, continues to inspire with his community service.

A recurring question during the exterior makeover of Gary Gaal's home was: "How does someone volunteer so many hours?" For Gaal, it's easy. "I see people on the worst day of their lives and try to make it better." Gaal works every hurricane, flood and snowstorm and manages the scene at auto accidents and any other disaster that may occur. He is dedicated to helping others and is extremely proud of becoming a Fire Unit Officer which puts him in charge as an Fire Engine OIC and in command of the fire ground as a first arriving engine officer. One example: when an 11-year-old boy was thrown 30 feet off his bike after being struck by a car, Gaal was the first to arrive, controlled the scene and administered life saving techniques until the medics arrived. The victim survived.
