New Jersey State Assemblyman John DiMaio, a long-time supporter of the Boy Scouts, will be honored by the Minsi Trails Council, Boy Scouts of America, as the 2015 Warren County Good Scout at a reception at Hawk Pointe Golf Club on Thursday Sept. 24.
DiMaio represents the 23rd District, which includes parts of Warren, Somerset and Hunterdon counties. The reception will be held at Hawk Pointe Golf Club, Route 31, Washington Twp., from 6-7:30 p.m.
The fundraiser event honors community leaders who have supported the Boy Scouts. The Boy Scouts of America event is a direct benefit for the 1200 Scouts of Warren County.
“I am truly honored to be recognized,” said DiMaio, who resides in Hackettstown. “The Boy Scouts of America is a terrific organization that does so many good things for our youth.”
Scott R. Wolfe, President, St. Luke’s Hospital’s Warren Campus, is the chair of this year’s reception. Wolfe is also a board member of the Minsi Trails Council.
Commenting on the upcoming event Wolfe said, “I believe Assemblyman John DiMaio is richly deserving of this recognition. He is an asset to Warren County – an elected representative who is deeply committed to economic growth, yet equally concerned about improving the quality of life for all those he represents.”
DiMaio has attended hundreds of Scouting award ceremonies over the years, from his days as mayor of Hackettstown, as a freeholder, and for the past several years as an assemblyman.
“I try to attend as many of these ceremonies as I can,” noted DiMaio. “I know how important it is to the Scouts, who have reached their scouting goals, and their families.”
DiMaio joins a long list of “Good Scouts” that have been honored by this group. In recent years, Chris Maier, Dr. Will Austin, Jason Coe, Jim Courter, Douglas Steinhardt, among others, have been so honored.
