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. She’s a member of the Parsippany Historical Society and has been on the Friends of the Library Committee. As a member of the Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany, Joyce supports and oversees the activities of the Aktion Club, providing adults with disabilities an opportunity to develop initiative, leadership skills, and the chance to serve their communities.  In 2013, Joyce received the "Tablet of Honor" award from Kiwanis International for having exemplified "dedicated service to Kiwanis, her club, community, or mankind."

Speakers included Morris County Clerk Ann Grossi, Sheriff James Gannon, Freeholder Deborah Smith and Detective Patrick LaGuerre from the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office.

Also in attendance was Parsippany-Troy Hills Mayor Michael Soriano.
