In Memory of Eura Lewis & Mark Snyder
"It is with great sadness that we learned this week of the passing of two former members of the Middleburg Town Council. Eura Lewis and Mark Snyder. Both served the town with distinction. Eura was a constant fixture in our community. Serving on Council as the first African American female in our Towns' history, she was a staunch supporter of civil rights and a champion of many great causes. None less than her passion for the Middleburg Museum Foundation which she founded. Her vision took to reality when the Foundation acquired the Pink Box. Today it is preserving our local history and heritage and we will ever be in her debt. Mark Snyder served on Council for 20 years. His hard work on many issues was overshadowed by his taking hold of the town's utility committee and transforming it into a well run enterprise, with modern infrastructure and overhauling our user model. Without Mark's efforts, our utility system would have been bankrupted years ago. Today, it operates in a fiscally sound manner, able to meet all the needs of our citizens - thanks to Mark's years of effort. I know i speak for every member of the Council, past and present, and the
Middleburg community when we express our heartfelt condolences to Eura and Mark's families on their loss. Their memories and contributions will always be a part of our community." - Mayor Bridge Littleton
