NEWTON — The 17th annual Sussex Tribute to Women Award Luncheon, held in early May at the Lake Mohawk Country Club honored Sparta resident Elisabeth-Anne Malkin and two others. The annual event honors women who serve as exemplary role models for youth through their vocations or avocations and who live their lives according to the ideals of the Boy Scout Oath and Law. Officials said Malkin holds a strong service record in both areas. Her current role as director of development at Bristol Glen, a continuing care retirement community owned by United Methodist Homes, focuses on raising funds to support seniors with exhausted or diminished financial resources. She also worked at Newton Memorial Hospital, the March of Dimes and as a legislative aide demonstrate commitment to service. Currently, she serves on the boards of Sussex County Community College, Sparta Kiwanis and the Morris County Ski Club. She also volunteers for many community organizations including the Newton Rotary, Sussex and Morris Boy Scouts, Sussex County 4H, Sussex County Food Pantry, Salvation Army, and the Newton and Sussex County Chambers of Commerce. “I learned from my parents to make a difference and become involved,” said Malkin. “From early experience as a Brownie and as a Girl Scout, I always enjoyed helping other people.” Malkin’s father attained the rank of Eagle Scout, and her mother, Helen Malkin, received the Tribute to Women Award in 2007.
