Miss Sandyston 2019
Congratulations Arthur House
Sandyston Senior of the Year 2020
On Saturday, August 22, 2020 Township Committee members Committeeman Fred MacDonald and Mayor George B. Harper presented Sandyston Township Volunteer Fire Department member, Arthur W. House with the 2020 Senior Citizen of the Year Award. This award is normally presented during Sandyston Day, but with the cancellation of that event it was decided to hold this award over to the Tractor Parade fundraiser.
Arthur House moved to Sandyston in 2004 and joined the Sandyston Township Volunteer Fire Department right away. Art is no stranger to volunteering his time to local fire departments having joined Branchville in 1965 until 1981 (Exempt Member) where he also served as Chief in 1975; he then moved to Franklin where he joined the fire department in 1981 and served as Engineer for many years and is an Exempt Member there as well; Arthur also joined Sussex Fire Department as an Associate member in 2001 where he is currently still a member.
Arthur has served as Engineer and Vice President for STVFD and is currently serving as Assistant Engineer and 2nd Vice President.
Arthur can be seen daily at the fire department refueling fire trucks, making repairs and working on any number of projects needed by the department and maintaining the fire apparatus.
Thank you, Arthur House, for the many hours you have spent volunteering for the many communities for which you have resided, as well as Sandyston Township, and for being such a valuable member of the Sandyston Township Volunteer Fire Department.
