In keeping with tradition, Denville Rotary recently selected an individual to receive it's annual Vocational Service Award.  The recipient must be someone who volunteers his expertise and vocational training freely and consistently over many years, promoting high ethical vocational standards while furthering the ideals of community service.  This year, Denville Rotary proudly and honorably presented the Vocational Service Award to John J. Egbert.  
If asked, John would likely tell you his first love is the Denville Volunteer Fire Department which runs very deeply in his family.  For four years, from 2004 to 2008, John served as the department's chief.  His dad and two of his brothers, Ricky and Tracy, also served as chiefs of the department and his brother Donnie served as a captain. John's career with the Fire Department began in 1983 as a junior fireman and in 1986 he had risen to the position of First Aid Lieutenant.  John was instrumental in working with the American Legion to procure Denville's first thermal imagng camera which was the first of it's kind in Morris County.  Today, John remains a member of the Denville Volunteer Fire Department and he continues to serve as the Director of the Department of Public Works which he has done for the past twelve years.  Denville Rotary and the entire community are indebted to you, John, for your willingness to serve and answer the call whenever necessary.  Congratulations!
