A local businessman and long-time member of the 200 Club of Morris County, a non-profit organization that supports area public safety personnel, has been elected president of the group.
Mount Olive resident William Lockwood, Marketing Executive with The Padded Wagon Moving and Storage, has been involved with the 200 Club for many years, most recently as Senior Vice President. He has been involved with many facets of the organization’s operations, including recruiting new members and increasing public awareness of the group. The 200 Club of Morris County reported that its membership rolls exceeded 1,000 members for the first time in several years.
“It is a courageous individual that answers the call in the middle of the night to help someone in need. Whether it’s a weekend, weekday or a holiday, our First Responders are there protecting our families every day of the year!” said Lockwood. “This organization pays tribute to them with our members’ support.”
He succeeds James M. Gannon, Morris County Sheriff, who is now the Chairman of the Board.
