Business of the Year
We are thrilled to announce the four finalists for our 2011 Citizen of the Year award - Gayle Cagianut, Cindy Campbell, Robert Karr and Nancy Thompson. One of the traits they all share is their unwavering willingness to keep working forward towards the betterment of our community, without need for recognition, praise or credit. They simply "press on". To that end, you may not know all that they've done for our community, so here is your opportunity to learn a little bit more about each one. We encourage you to read (and be inspired by) the brief bios that we asked them to submit.
