Destination Downtown honors Daniel, wife
SoVaNow.com / June 20, 2014
The Board of Destination Downtown South Boston honored Ted and Myra Daniel on Thursday evening, June 12 which was attended by Board members, spouses and friends. Hosted at the home of Carol and Mark Foster, the group celebrated the 15 year cooperative relationship between the retiring Town Manager and DDSB, whose shared goals have resulted in significant improvements in historic downtown South Boston.
Board members, business owners and community leaders recalled some of the many achievements attributed to Mr. Daniel and his initiatives. Tom Raab was a member of the nominating committee to select the new Town Manager, and commented that they knew they had chosen the “right man for the job” after an onsite interview in Urbanna, Ted’s prior assignment. “Ted was literally running the town; a hands-on manager getting the job done.”
The Board presented Ted and Myra with gifts to take to their new home in Spotsylvania.
Gene Haugh, current President of DDSB, presented Daniel with a beautiful framed photo of Town Hall, Daniel’s headquarters for the past 15 years.
Clint Johnson, Product Design and Development Director at The Innovation Center, presenting Daniel with an engraved plaque with the town logo.
To honor Ted and preserve his legacy, the Board also purchased one of the new benches designed and created at The Innovation Center of SVHEC. The bench will be placed permanently in the park area of the new Carter Green on Main Street when it is completed later this summer.
Jayne Elliott, Board member, presented Daniel with a plaque picturing one of the benches surrounded by the students who designed and constructed them. The bench will commemorate Mr. Daniel and list some of his major projects. Mr. and Mrs. Daniel have promised to return for the dedication of Carter Green.
Ted and Myra will be missed, but his positive impact on the Town of South Boston will be a permanent reminder of his tenure as Town Manager of South Boston, board members commented.
