This is a special year for Gene Warden. He will be celebrating his retirement July 1st and serving our community in a very important role.
Gene Warden is 2011 Border Days Committee President and honors the community in his role as 2011 Border Days Rodeo Grand Marshall. Mr. Warden will also officially retire from his position as maintenance supervisor for MountainView School District, a job he has held for the past 22 years.
I don’t know Gene Warden very well personally, but I do know that he is a man of many many talents. He can do anything when it comes to carpentry and construction as witnessed years ago when he helped his niece, Rebecca Warden, take care of construction on a home she purchased for her and her son.
Gene Warden can be seen roaming about in the Nez Perce National Forest. He loves the outdoors, ATVing, hunting and camping with family and friends. Whenever you see Gene Warden in the great outdoors, you know his wife Leslie is not far away. They love to spend time together no matter what season, and are active in the local Snowmobile Club.
Gene Warden is the quintessential community role model, always ready and willing to help out wherever help is needed.
Congratulations to Mr. Warden on his retirement and a big giant thanks for his efforts, his devotion to community and his 2011 role as Grand Marshall of this year’s Border Days celebration!
