Title
Health and Human Services Agency recommending the Board adopt a Proclamation designating May 2012 as "Foster Parent Appreciation Month" in the County of El Dorado.
 
Body
Reason for Recommendation:  Each year America celebrates the month of May as National Foster Care Month.  The adoption and presentation of a Proclamation to designate May 2012 as Foster Parent Appreciation Month in the County of El Dorado provides an opportunity for the Board of Supervisors to pay tribute to the County's foster parent population and encourage all businesses, public and private, as well as all schools, groups, and citizens to acknowledge the importance of foster care in their own community.
 
Action to be taken following Board approval:  Board Clerk to return one (1) copy of the fully signed Foster Parent Appreciation Month proclamation adopted by the Board of Supervisors on May 15, 2012 to HHSA at Briw Road.
