Cleveland, Campbell Chosen as Lord and Lady Fairfax
Westfield PTSA volunteer and booster club president honored for service to the Sully District community.
Celebrate Fairfax recently announced the selection of the Sully District Lord and Lady Fairfax.
The tradition of honoring Lords and Ladies Fairfax began in 1984 as a unique way to recognize exceptional citizens of Fairfax County. Each year, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors selects two people from each district who have demonstrated superior volunteer service, heroism, or other special accomplishments to receive the award.
The Lords and Ladies will be honored at a special dinner hosted by Great American Restaurants, Celebrate Fairfax, Inc., and the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, on Tuesday, June 5. They will also be presented by the Board during their meeting at the Fairfax County Government Center, 12000 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax.
