The Morris County Freeholders on Dec. 22 dedicated a Wall of Service honoring past members of the freeholder board.

Former Freeholders Honored by Current Board With Wall of ServiceThe Wall of Service, outside the Public Meeting Room on the 5th floor of the county’s Administration and Records Building in Morristown consists of three plaques featuring the names of more than 260 freeholders dating from the 1700’s to today.

“Serving the citizens of Morris County as a freeholder is an honor,” said Freeholder Director Tom Mastrangelo during a dedication ceremony. “With that in mind, my colleagues and I thought it would be a fitting gesture to pay tribute to the men and women who have served the citizens of this county from the time it was established to today.”

The ceremony was attended by several former freeholders and family members of former freeholders, all of whom were thanked by Mastrangelo and members of the current freeholder board for their service to the citizens of Morris County.

“Each person whose name is on this Wall of Service has had something to do, in one way or another, with making Morris County the great county that it is today,” Mastrangelo said, “and they deserve to recognized.”

Among the former freeholders who attended the dedication ceremony were Congressman Rodney Frelinghuysen, Carol Rufener, Frank Druetzler, John Inglesino, Margaret Nordstrom, Gene Feyl, Jim Murray, Douglas Romaine and County Clerk Ann Grossi.

Assemblyman Anthony Bucco represented his father, Senator Anthony R. Bucco; Vincent Fox represented his brother, John Fox; and Mrs. Lucille Scerbo represented her late husband, Alfonse W. Scerbo.
