On May 22, 2018 Morris County Clerk Ann F. Grossi held the third annual Cecilia “Cissy” Laureys Senior Volunteer Award Ceremony at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum in Morris Township.
The Cissy Laureys Award for outstanding community service recognizes one deserving citizen for his or her outstanding community service to the constituencies that Cissy Laureys championed. “I am happy to celebrate Older Americans Month by holding this annual ceremony in honor of Cissy’s lifetime of dedicated service,” said County Clerk Grossi.
Nineteen Morris County municipalities each nominated an outstanding citizen for consideration for this year’s award.
The nominee from Parsippany-Troy Hills was Joyce Garrow.
Joyce Garrow is a volunteer with the Retired Senior Volunteers Program teaching Healthy Bones, an exercise program for senior citizens.

In 2013, Joyce received the "Tablet of Honor" award from Kiwanis International for having exemplified "dedicated service to Kiwanis, her club, community, or mankind."
