FANWOOD, NJ -- The Fanwood Borough Council named Jane Frost-Guzzo its Volunteer of the Month at its August 21, 2017, Council meeting.

Frost-Guzzo is the Vice President of the Board of Trustees of the Fanwood Memorial Library. She has been a trustee, a volunteer position, for the past eight years. She recently retired as an English teacher and still volunteers as a teacher of English as a second language. She has helped the Library Board navigate its path along the process of planning a renovation of the library building.

Upon receiving the traditional token of appreciation from the Council -- a framed print of the historic Fanwood train station -- Frost-Guzzo urged all residents to vote YES in November for the referendum question that would approve the state’s borrowing $125 million for much needed renovations to libraries across New Jersey. is Scotch Plains-Fanwood’s only free daily paper.
