Navarre area resident Warren “Charlie” Brown was a well-respected local leader who did much to benefit his community before his passing in 2011.
To recognize his contributions, State Senator Don Gaetz and State Rep. Matt Gaetz worked with their fellow lawmakers during the past legislative session and won approval for a portion of Highway 98 in Santa Rosa County to be named the “Warren E. ‘Charlie’ Brown Memorial Highway.”

The dedication ceremony will be held September 11.
