TRENTON, N.J.—The Professional Insurance Agents of New Jersey awarded Franklin Mutual Insurance Group, of Branchville, N.J., with the association’s Community Service award during the association’s Annual Conference at Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City. Lisa Glesias accepted the award on behalf of Franklin Mutual Insurance Group.
