At the Oct. 16 Fanwood Council Meeting, Mayor Mahr called upon two business owners as Fanwood's Volunteers of the Month. The brothers, Steven and Jason Parker own K-9 Resorts and co-chaired Fanny Wood Day.
Mahr noted that over 200 residents volunteer in some way for Fanwood and for the first time the council wanted to focus on a local business, following the success of Fanny Wood Day.
"We wanted to acknoweldge those who go beyond just having a business address in Fanwood," Mahr said.
Steven Parker thanked the Mayor for honoring himself and his brother Jason.
"We really appreaciate all the residents and all of our customers."
Steven added that although residents of Scotch Plains, (the council jokingly gasped), they are still proud Fanwoodians.
Councilman Parenti also noted in his reports that he thanks the work the brothers did on Fanny Wood Day and are looking forward to the great ideas they have for upcoming projects.
The Parker brothers business, K-9 Resorts, is a daycare and luxury boarding facility for dogs. It is located on 43 South Avenue, Fanwood.
The business began in Fanwood and is now expanding to be franchised throughout the United States.
Mayor Mahr presented the brothers with a picture of the train station to hang inside their business.
