Who is the Muskego Person of the Year?

Who comes to mind when you think of who's made a difference in the community this year, toiled for something great in relative obscurity or in grand style?

It's the end of the year, and Muskego Patch has had the privilege of meeting some amazing people, doing great things.

There was 'Doc' Dentice who's been providing Christmas with the Vets for 24 years, Maxine Learned at Maxine's Studio of Dance who organized the city's first mud run to raise money for cancer research, and Stacy Young who's dedication for cancer fundraising was the inspiration for friends to in turn raise funds to help her in her own battle with the disease. However, we know there are more people doing good that we never hear about.

This December, we'd like your help determing the Muskego Patch person of the year. You can nominate anyone who lives, works or volunteers in town, but nominations close at 9 a.m. Dec. 13, so submit your picks now!

There are two ways to nominate someone:

Fill out the form above. We're asking for the person's name, why you think they should be Person of the Year, and a way to contact them. We also need your name and a way to contact you. This information will be sent only to Patch, and contact information will not be published.

Or, you can nominate someone in the comments, once you've signed up for and are logged in to your Patch account. If you choose to use the comments to make your nomination, please give us the person's name and why you think they should be person of the year, but don't put in specific contact information.

Instead, use the person's name and enough detail so we could track them down. (For example: “The neighbor boy who rakes my leaves all fall” isn't enough for us to go on, but “Mrs. Johnson at who helped the third grade class at SCHOOL NAME with a great volunteer opportunity” would be a great starting point!)

Once nominations close at 9 a.m. Dec. 13, Patch editors will go through all the submissions and choose a person (or people) or the year. Stories will start running Dec. 26.
