Our People, Our Community: Congratulations to Dave Warren, Elected Rotary's District 6250 Governor

On Monday, April 7th, I was invited to attend a community gathering of Janesville and Milton leaders at the Janesville Noon Rotary Club, whereby I learned that Milton’s very own Dave Warren had been elected to serve as District Governor of Rotary District 6250. Dave is the owner of Dave’s Ace Hardware in Milton, and is well known for his civic involvement in a variety of worthwhile causes in the City of Milton and beyond. His recent election to District governor is indicative of his commitment to community service and helping those in need. The City of Milton is lucky to have him as part of our community. Please join me in congratulating Dave Warren and his election Rotary District 6250 District Governor the next time you see him.  Below is additional information about Dave and his service as District Governor.
