Governor Dave meets E-Club on Zoom
Meet District 7640 Governor Dave
Equal to his devotion to dentistry is Dave’s passion for volunteerism. A founding member of the New Jersey chapter of Project Stretch and South Jersey Smiles, Dave has provided free dental treatment to children in third world countries. A focus of his six
missions has been Nicaragua, the poorest nation in all the Americas. There he traveled to remote villages to set up makeshift dental clinics to treat poor children who had never seen a dentist. The mission was to educate them and provide necessary treatment to relieve sometimes painful problems. He has also been to even more remote areas through the San Juan Rios Relief Fund organization which provide both medical and dental care to residents living along the San Juan River. He has also gone on medical/dental missions to Ghana with the International Healthcare Organization and Thailand and Jamaica with Rotary International. Closer to home, Dave has provided dental care at the Project Smiles clinic at the Cathedral Kitchen in Camden, New Jersey.
A member of Rotary for eleven years, Dave has had a Rotary career that has spanned two clubs and different positions. Starting as a member of the Haddon Heights Rotary Club, he served as Secretary and President. Now with the Garden State Rotary club, he was
named their Rotarian of the Year in 2006. In 2007, he obtained his first Paul Harris Fellowship. On a district level, he served as District Chair for Volunteerism, a Foundation Coordinator for two years, Assistant Governor for three years, and Director of International Service for two years. He is also presently on the faculty of the Rotary Leadership Institute. A strong proponent of international service, he took part in two NID missions, one in India and one in Nigeria, experiences that he has treasured the experience of changing a child’s life by a single inoculation. In 2013, Dave was awarded the Service Above Self Award by Rotary International, a rare and unexpected honor.
Dave presently resides in Tabernacle Township with Diane, his wife of 43 years, who is a school counselor in Haddon Heights. Together they have raised three children and are presently enjoying their two granddaughters.
