McCabe named Volunteer of the Month

By Staff | May 27, 2016

Danielle McCabe says, “I can’t complain unless I step up to the plate.”

And stepped up to the plate she has. Without complaint, she makes things happen.

McCabe was recently named Volunteer of the Month. She is an enthusiastic member of the Jaycees, and was involved in the effort to bring the Orange Jaycee Park into existence, among the many other activities the Jaycees are involved with. Her two children and her husband participate in the family-friendly Jaycee events.

Originally from Wishek, she thinks life in a small town promotes participation in community.

Danielle met her husband, Tobias, in Bismarck at a wedding dance. They lived in Davenport, Iowa, while going to school. He graduated from the Palmer School of Chiropractic and she received her associate degree in Applied Science in Chiropractic Technology from Palmer. After graduation, they decided they wanted to return to North Dakota.

They looked at Jamestown and Rugby. They saw Rugby as a good place to raise a family. Their two children, Mayson and Isabella, are now teenagers. Toby likes being close to his relatives in his hometown of Granville.

The family moved here in 2005. In January 2006, after remodeling the office building on Main Ave., they opened the McCabe Family Chiropractic. Skills learned in college help her manage the front and back office duties. Recently, recognizing a need in Rolla for their services, they opened a satellite clinic. It is open two days a week.

Golf is the McCabes’ family sport. As her children became more involved in golf, it was a given that Danielle would be the golf representative in Sports Boosters. She is active, along with other parents, in raising money to provide sports equipment and help fund events that are beyond the school budget.

Family and children’s activities are important to Danielle. In her high school days she sat as a student representative on the Wishek Dollars for Scholars board. Here in Rugby she continues to work for the cause. The money raised goes to Rugby graduates for college expenses.

As a cancer survivor, she knows the importance of Relay for Life. Danielle is helping form a new team the Jaycees are fielding to participate in Relay for Life activities.

Her membership in these organizations helps the community and has given her a social outlet. When she first arrived in Rugby she found it hard to meet people. Then she was invited to join the Jaycees. She met other parents through Little Flower and through the Sports Boosters and golf. Danielle says she feels good when she helps others.

Danielle would like to return to school someday, but for now she helps her husband at the chiropractic clinic. The children and her community involvement keep her busy.
