Congratulations to Cindy Brookshire.  She was selected Manassas Woman of the Year!  Cindy will be riding in the open convertible in this year’s Christmas Parade and she certainly serves as a wonderful role model for us all.

Cindy is a leader in her church and her community.  She keeps everyone informed of all the good things about the City of Manassas.  She doesn’t stop her efforts at the boundary lines either.  She is more than willing to share her time and effort with Prince William County. 

Cindy has been very instrumental in making the Neighborhood Watch Program a pillar in many communities.  She has also worked closely with city officials and youth groups to do neighborhood cleanups and spruce ups.  Cindy doesn’t just camp on the phone, organizing these initiatives.  She is out there with everyone else and is generally the last to leave a clean up site.

Cindy is not afraid to step out of her comfort zone over things she believes to be right and just.  She doesn’t look around to make sure she is on the popular side of an issue.  We are all proud of Cindy Brookshire and wish her well during her reign as Manassas Woman of the Year!

    Congrats, Cindy B. That is certainly a big deal in my book. I was unaware until now of your role in Neighborhood Watch and in neighborhood clean-ups. You go, girl! Please accept a tip of the proverbial hat from a fellow Neighborhood Watch and clean-up crew in Loudoun County. Proud to be able to share blog space with you.

  5. Good Lord! I feel like I’m in Sandra Bullock movie! One day I’m in my sweat pants with a trash stick, picking up used condoms and beer cans along the front of the elementary school and the next I’m at the Boys & Girls Club for the Neighborhood Conference hearing John Martin of Dudley Martin Chevrolet call my name up to the stage.

    Stan Fields: What is the one most important thing our society needs?
    Gracie Hart: That would be… harsher punishment for parole violators, Stan.
    [crowd is silent]
    Gracie Hart: And world peace!
    [crowd cheers ecstatically]
    Stan Fields: Isn’t she lovely? Thank you, Gracie Lou.
    Gracie Hart: And thank *you*, Stan.
    [Gracie walks offstage]

    I really do want world peace!

    Congrats Ms. Brookshire.

  8. Miss you, Brian! When good people leave the city they take such a brain trust of information with them. You’re probably twice as busy now!

    Congrats, Cindy! I’m glad that your commitment to your community got the recognition that it deserves. You’ve walked the walk!

  10. And Cindy, I sure am glad you left your stick of used condoms and beer cans elsewhere before accepting your award…..Just kidding of course. Again, Congratulations for being recognized for all you give to your community.

    Cindy, you are an inspiration to us all. You are always very gracious and kind, even forgiving when others may not find that same ability (me included!). You work so hard for the good of the community, expecting nothing in return.
