Daniel Clyne is our Good Neighbor Days weekend featured neighbor!!!
His neighbor Emily nominated him and described him as:
“One of the most social, outgoing, kind neighbors. New residents move in and he’s the first to greet them. If he sees a neighbor struggling with yard work or home improvements, he runs over to offer help. He even brings fresh banana bread over on cold winter days. He is always offering his tools or supplies to neighbors and tells them to keep them. He shovels neighbors’ driveways when they are gone without even being asked. He is always watching out for the littles in our neighborhood, making sure they are safe. Daniel will drop off and pick up neighbor kids needing rides to work or back. Honestly – he is the most selfless neighbor. I can’t say enough.”
Get to know your neighbor, Daniel (in his own words):
What brought me to Byron and what I like about it????
I work in Dodge Center and my wife works in Rochester --- so it’s kind of a halfway point, but mainly came for the school system. I like it here because everyone is so friendly. We got very lucky getting into a neighborhood with so many great people.
Tell us about your life in Byron, what keeps you busy?
My life in Byron is “anything outside”. I love just being outside and talking to anybody. My kids keep me busy; especially my 6 year old! That kid never stops – lol (laugh-out-loud for those that don’t text) 😊.
How do you stay connected to your neighbors?
Most of us neighbors stay connected through the neighborhood Facebook page or chatting with one another. Most of the time I talk too much and I’m hard to get rid of.
Tell us why it’s important to you to support the community and neighbors?
I think it’s important to support the community and neighbors because it’s just the right thing to do. If your neighbors are happy, then technically they should make their neighbors happy, and so on.
I’ve heard from a few people now, asking about this last question and they told me I make them feel welcomed. That means a lot to me.
I’d like to say a special thank you to Emily for nominating me. I’ve never received anything like this before and am honored.
