Nominations sought for annual News honor

The New Richmond News is seeking nominations for "Person of the Year" honors for 2011.

Each year, the local newspaper selects one person from the surrounding community to be recognized as "Person of the Year."

Last year's honoree was local volunteer Mona Flanum, who has been involved in the Five Loaves Food Shelf and Clothing Center for many years, along with other volunteer efforts.

To nominate someone you think we should consider for this year's award, call editor Jeff Holmquist at 715-246-6881 or email .

A brief paragraph outlining your reasons for nominating the individual will be required. Deadline for nominating someone is Wednesday, Dec. 28.
