Pastor Tilly And Tilly’s Kids

(Pastor Tilly receiving NJ Governor’s Award.)

Pastor Tilly Giresi was nominated by Peggy Fischer of Sparta NJ for the NJ
Governor’s Jefferson Awards in the Faith-Based Services category.

The awards were held June 8, 2015, at the Newark Museum where volunteers
from across the state were recognized. The honorees take up the vision of Thomas Jefferson’s vision of being
involved and serving in their local communities. Pastor Tilly’s favorite quote is “It is more blessed to give than receive”.
