Additional honorees named for park-service awards

Must Read

The Fairfax County Park Authority has announced that two individuals and an organization will receive special recognition as part of the 2022 Elly Doyle Park Service Awards program.

The special honorees include:

• Stuart Copan is a volunteer with more than 11 years of service at Burke Lake Park. Copan spends an average 120 volunteer hours annually doing whatever needs to be done to benefit the park and patrons.

• Chuck Welch has been volunteering at Laurel Hill Golf Club for nearly a decade, working as a starter during the busiest times of the week.


• The Jefferson Manor Citizens Association contributes hundreds of service hours to the maintenance and stewardship of Jefferson Manor Park.

In addition, the Park Authority has named Ava Belmot and Yasmine Marrero as Elly Doyle Youth Volunteer Service Award recipients for 2022.

Belmont volunteers with the Laurel Hill Park Volunteer Team and IMA, where she leads subgroups during larger events and provides guidance to volunteers with less experience.

Marrero began her service to the Fairfax County Park Authority with the Friends of Lake Accotink Park (FLAP), as a monthly trail-cleanup volunteer. Fitting with her passion as a steward of the environment, she created the Young FLAPpers subgroup.
