Two Randolph Residents Receive Special Morris County Resolutions
Posted: October 25, 2019
On Friday, October 18, 2019, Morris County celebrated 25 years of the voter-approved Morris County Open Space Trust Fund.
Since the first grant was awarded in 1994, thousands of acres of open space across the county have been preserved, helping to maintain the county’s high quality of life. Events to highlight the preservation program were held in Jefferson and Chatham Township. In addition to members of the current freeholder board, other dignitaries including members of the current and previous county Open Space Trust Fund Committee were in attendance. Randolph resident, founding member and current chairman of the Open Space Trust Fund Committee, Jay Thomson, spoke at the event. Freeholder Director Doug Cabana presented Mr. Thomson with a special Morris County resolution.
On Wednesday evening, October 23, 2019, the Morris County Freeholders presented Morris County Distinguished Military Service Medals to eight veterans from across the county, honoring these men and women for their service to our country and their communities after their days in the military. They also honored Randolph resident and Marine Corps veteran, Emerson Crooks, who served in Vietnam in the 1960s. Mr. Crooks received a special Morris County resolution in connection with the 244th birthday of the U.S. Marine Corps.

October is Substance Use Prevention Month
Posted: October 3, 2019
The Morris County Board of Freeholders proclaimed October as National Substance Use Prevention Month in Stigma-Free Morris County.
In making the proclamation, the county governing board is highlighting the positive efforts being made by the Municipal Alliance Network in Morris County, which is on the front line of dealing with substance use by our young residents.
In Stigma-Free Morris County, there are 28 municipal alliances, representing 33 of Morris County’s 39 municipalities and these grassroots organizations are comprised mainly of dedicated volunteers.
Randolph Township’s Municipal Alliance Committee (MAC) meets monthly and collaborates with the schools and the community to bring awareness and prevention programs to residents. This year they presented programs such as Mental Health First Aid Training and psychologist/comedian Matt Bellace, and coordinated the Healthy Body, Healthy Mind Expo last May. Committee members also participated in community events as well as county initiatives and forums.
