Boston – On Oct. 26, the Associated Subcontractors of Massachusetts (ASM) held its Biennial Dinner Gala & Elections at the Omni Parker House in Boston.

At the event, the Marr family was honored with the Joseph M. Corwin Pinnacle Award, for their support of ASM, commitment to professionalism in the construction industry, and leading efforts to provide for youth in their community. Since 1997, the Marr family has supported the association’s programs and legislative efforts, volunteered on committees, sponsored events and hosted safety roundtables at their Center for Safety Training. Marr’s community support includes founding the Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester (formerly the Colonel Daniel Marr Boys & Girls Club), in 1971. Jeffrey Marr, Jr., president of Marr Scaffolding Company, is ending his term as ASM president of the board of directors but will continue to serve on the executive board.
