RARITAN TWP., NJ – Hunterdon’s Sheriff will be recognized by the county’s Boy Scouts at a special event Oct. 4.

The Scouts have chosen to honor Frederick W. Brown with its Distinguished Citizen Award. Brown has served as the County Sheriff since 2010, and is active in the community. The Scouts say that Brown embodies the tenet of the Scout Oath: “To help other people at all times.”

The award is granted by the Boy Scouts of America and the Washington Crossing Council upon the recommendation of a committee of community leaders and past recipients.

The event will be held at Hunterdon Central High School with a reception beginning at 6:30 p.m. The program will follow at 7 p.m.
