Faces …

That’s what a community is all about. A face with a name and a name that has made a difference, made an impact, done something special. A face that defines a community.

That’s what we’re looking for. Faces from our community. Special people who have left an unforgettable impression.

The Post Independent will be publishing a “Community Faces” edition around Thanksgiving. A fitting time of year to recognize special people from our community.

We need nominations. We need you to tell us about those special people in our community. Everyday people, volunteers, good neighbors, great Samaritans, public officials, coaches, instructors, teachers ” the list is endless. The criteria are simple. Nominees should be from Garfield County. Then it’s up to you ” if you think a person deserves a little time in the spotlight tell us why.

Here’s what we need. Send us the person’s name, where he/she lives, their contact information and write two-three sentences summing up why you’re nominating the person.

We can’t do everyone ” we’re looking at around 15 people to highlight. I wish we could do more, but there will be other opportunities in the future.

Send your nominations to 2014 Grand Ave., Glenwood Springs, CO 81601; 945-8515, ext. 517 or e-mail to news@postindependent.com. Deadline for nominations is Oct. 14.

Tell us about that community face. Special people have earned a little time in the spotlight.
