On this occasion, please join the Bernie L. Bates Foundation, Inc., as it formally recognizes members of the Fairfax community who have most closely followed the tenets and principles practiced by the late Lord Fairfax, Col. Marion “Barney” Barnwell, USA, (Ret). 

As a pillar in the Fairfax community Col. Barnwell, a community activist with a demonstrated history of community involvement and volunteerism consistently demonstrated a “pay it forward” mentality.
 

Marion Barnwell’s commitment to helping others was unparalleled even as he inspired his fellow volunteers through his passion for service and humble, reliable leadership.
