Face Time with Dave Broz

Elburn resident Dave Broz, 39, president of the Elburn Lions Club, was having breakfast at Kountry Kettle in Elburn when he answered nine questions for the Kane County Chronicle’s Al Lagattolla.

Where did you grow up? As a kid, I lived in Chicago and moved to Rockford after that.

Who would play you in the movie of your life? When I was a kid, I loved the “Star Wars” movies, and I always thought Harrison Ford was an awesome actor. If he would do it, I would want Harrison Ford to play my part.

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? The first thing I wanted to be was a school bus driver.

When did you stop wanting to be a bus driver? When I started wanting to be a baseball player, also as a kid.

What’s the best thing about being the president of the Lions Club? Gaining an appreciation for everything people do down at the club. And seeing all of the ways that we can help other people.

When did you know you wanted to join the Lions Club? My friend Jeff Miller approached me and said, hey we need help at the park and asked for help putting up fencing. … I went down with Jeff and met Joe Kryszak. It was raining cats and dogs, just pouring buckets of water. We set up fencing for hours and hours. … I guess it was just fun hanging out with Jeff and Joe, and at that point, I didn’t even know what the club was all about. … I worked a couple of events and found out more about what the Lions Club does, and I saw it was good for the community.

What is your favorite local restaurant? Eddie Gaedel’s

Is there a book or movie you’d recommend? I thought “World War Z” was a pretty good read. … For the movie, I’ve seen “Frozen” a couple of times. It’s a good movie. I’ve got two kids, and we’ve seen “Frozen.”

What is an interesting factoid about yourself? My ancestors came over on the Mayflower.
