Nominate a Citizen of the Year in the Bay

Horseshoe Bay is looking for someone to honor as its 2017 Citizen of the Year.

The Horsehose Bay Business Alliance, along with the Horseshoe Bay City Council, is now accepting nominations for Citizen of the Year through Aug. 31.

All citizens of Horseshoe Bay are eligible to submit nominations to receive the award. The Citizen of the Year may be an individual or couple and will be chose from the following criteria:

* Civic, community or church involvement: 50 percent of the criteria considered.

* Accomplishments and contributions to the economic growth and quality of life in Horseshoe Bay: 30 percent of the criteria considered.

* Additional outstanding characteristics the nominee has: 20 percent of criteria considered.

Nominees must demonstrate leadership, valor or exemplary service in thecommunity, go above and beyond normal community involvement and volunteerism, and their philanthropic efforts will also be considered.

The idea for a Citizen of the Year award originated in 2016 from Horseshoe Bay City Council member Reagan Lambert, who proposed the idea at a council meeting. The Horseshoe Bay Business Alliance enthusiastically picked up the ball and ran with it, creating a nominating committee to design the nomination form, determine the criteria used and it will serve as selection committee.

Three finalists will be announced on or about Sept. 30 and the Citizen of the Year will be selected from those finalists and announced Oct. 25. The winner (or winners) will be feted at a special event on Nov. 29 at Quail Point Lodge.

A nomination form can be obtained by emailing MBrittHSBBA@gmail.com. Submissions may be returned to that email address or mailed to Horseshoe Bay Business Alliance, PO Box 8848, Horseshoe Bay, TX 78657.
