Silver Service Award: Dan Grant

Printer-friendly version

Dan Grant is a life-long Montville Township resident. Community service has always been part of his family life. His grandfather moved to a farm in Montville in 1917. His father was a Cub Scout leader, coach, and co-president of the PTA. His mother was Den mother, active in her church, and a co-founder of the Montville Township Women’s Club. It naturally followed that as Grant raised his family here, he would be involved in the community.

Grant’s current activities include Vice Chair of the Historic Preservation Review Commission, and Director of the Changing Images Art Foundation, a non-profit involved in providing interactive art for people in hospitals and institutions. He also serves as Democratic Municipal Chair and member of the Morris County Democratic Committee.

Grant’s proudest achievements include working with others on the Township Committee to obtain the large amount of open space that Montville Township enjoys, and expanding recreational opportunities for all our children as the Township grew. His most enjoyable times were spent coaching Little League and Girls’ Softball, and teaching Sunday School.

Grant has served 15 years as an elected official and member of assorted committees in conjunction with that role. He volunteered for 10 years on the Planning Board. He served on the governing body of his Church, taught adult Christian Education, and was a former Deacon and Elder.
