Bay Ridge

He’s the man of the hour.

Hip, hip hooray for Theodore “Ted” General. The Bay Ridge man-about-town, columnist, and generally do-gooding guy was presented with the 2018 Brotherhood Award at the Parent-Teacher Association’s International Brotherhood Tea at PS/IS 104 on the day of love, Feb. 14.

Ted was honored for his continuing dedication to the community.

Principal Marie DiBella, along with Ted’s wife, Janet Olson-General, his daughter Teresa Mendez, grandchildren Grace and Giovanni, and a passel of well-wishers including Janine Faustner, Dana Poskanzer, Dolores LaRocca, Sophia Koutouzis, and Victoria Anoshina were all on hand to honor Ted for his selfless dedication to the children, the school and the community.

Wife Janet said it best in a Facebook post: “Congratula­tions to my husband on being the recipient of the 2018 Brotherhood Award honoring your continued love and service to our community.”

Ted, in case you didn’t know it, is the driving force behind the Ragamuffin parade held each year, writes an opinion column for another publication, Generally Speaking, and is on the Prison Ship Martyrs Memorial Committee, to just name a few.

Standing O salutes Ted for all his hard work.
