George has been active in many additional organizations throughout Sussex County, including Newton Rotary, Sussex County Chamber of Commerce, Pass it Along, United Way of Sussex County and the Kittatinny Regional High School and Frankford Township Boards of Education.  

“We’re so excited to celebrate George as our Community
