Our 2013 “You Make It Happen” award recipient, Danny Paisner, has been an actively participating member of NECA for decades. He is a very familiar face. In fact, it’s unusual, and noticed, when he’s not in the room, on the bus, at a Board meeting, on the links.
Here are some of the hints we provided in our award presentation since we never let the recipient know he or she is the one.
Some personal preferences and information:
You all know that our honoree has worked as partners with his brother for the past 30 years at ScrubaDub and is a past president of the NECA. Our honoree also is deeply committed to giving back to his community. ScrubADub is well known for its charitable work but lesser known is what Danny does on his own. Danny took off time from his busy schedule to go to Africa to teach entrepreneurship and deliver school supplies. He often can be found at the MA Avenue Baptist Church in Cambridge soup kitchen preparing meals for the poor. He spearheaded a fundraiser to benefit the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.
Danny has never rested in his efforts for NECA, and we are so very grateful for his creativity, energy and commitment. He truly does make it happen!
