As of July 2010, I have reached 76 years. I retired in 2004 and have been enjoying my retirement by getting involved in community activities. I am an active member of the Keep Oconee Clean & Beautiful which I founded with the help of the Oconee BOC in 1992. Also a member of the Oconee Chamber of Commerce (Ambassador), OCAF, the Veterans Memorial Foundation and the local Oconee GOP. In 2007, I was appointed by the BOC Chairman, Melvin Davis as a member of the CSB - Advantage Behavioral Health Systems and last year was voted as the Chairman of that 16-member Community Service Board. Am also the owner of the Web site - a Positive Vision of Oconee County - started in 2004. I began attending government and community events and took photos of the meetings to compliment my articles on the Web site. Since then, I have collected over 40,000 photos. I guess you could call me the roving community photographer. I enjoy meeting people and helping where I can be of help. I am married to Mac McDaniel and have 2 very talented children, Dan and Cindy. I try to stay abreast of happenings in the County and outside the county that if they are relative to Oconee residents so as to record these happenings for posterity. My Photos will be given to the Oconee Library for all to access and enjoy for years to come when I am no longer able to use them.
