Township of Hazlet Recognizes Volunteers for Long History of Service
Two of Hazlet's most active volunteers have been recognized for their long history of service and devotion to the welfare of our community.
Peggy King was named "Monmouth County's Volunteer of the Year" and was honored at the Governor's Summit. Peggy has served as an active member of the Hazlet Municipal Alliance for over 17 years and thrives in the role of public relations/awareness representative for the Alliance. Her commitment to the work of the Alliance, her strong advocacy and her long tenure as an active volunteer have made her the cornerstone of the Hazlet Alliance program. Among Peggy's many contributions is her active recruitment of volunteers to participate in the various programs administered by the Hazlet Alliance. If there is a community need, Peggy promptly springs into action & helps to organize whatever needs to be done. She has recently been named as co-chairperson of the Alliance.
