Tokarz has been a member of the Kiwanis Club of Milford for four years and currently serves on the executive board. He will remain with the Milford Club in addition to being responsible for the Division 24 Kiwanis clubs, which include Bridgeport, Danbury, Fairfield and Greater Waterbury.

“I am honored, humbled and eager to start my new position within the Kiwanis organization,” Tokarz said. “The Kiwanis Club has been a long-standing, integral aspect of the local community and its club members are avid supporters of the Kiwanis ideals. I look forward to working with the Division 24 Kiwanis Clubs and members.“
