Soccer Association, FP/EH Football Club, and FP Cheerleaders in a ceremony attended by 750+ people on September 5, 2014 for the Fall 2014 season.  The new Volunteer Park is designed to supplement, not replace, the existing fields throughout the Borough.

Fred Stobaeus & Lou Boyd Awards

Administered by the Recreation Committee, these two annual awards are named for Fred Stobaeus and Lou Boyd, whose volunteer efforts were instrumental in building the borough’s recreation programs. Each spring, the awards are given to Florham Park students who are outstanding in sportsmanship, leadership, athletic ability, and academic achievement, and who are positive role models in the community. Fred Stobaeus was known as “Mr. Recreation” and was chairman of the first Recreation Committee. In 1955, he founded the Little League baseball program in Florham Park. Lou Boyd was also an active promoter of recreation opportunities and was a long-time secretary of the Recreation Committee. In 1966, the Fred Stobaeus Award was established. The Lou Boyd Award followed in 1976. Click List of award winners for the list of previous winners.
