Disease (if any) accounting for the holes in the leaves?

|It reminds me a bit of American Beautyberry (Callicarpa americana) and I don't think it's a disease but rather some type of chewing insect.
Hopefully others will be along with a more exact ID and possible suggestions on what type of insect damage is occurring with your plant.

|That is a Viburnum - Viburnum lantana, which has the ungainly common name of Wayfaringtree Viburnum.
I agree that is insect chewing damage. It is extensive enough to worry about whether it is Viburnum Leaf Beetle (VLB) damage. I think your part of PA can be afflicted by this pest.
I would be taking samples to your Cooperative Extension Service to see if you have VLB. That is one destructive insect.
