Using the comments below, tell us about fellow community members who impressed you with their dedication to the area.
At Patch, we know it's important to pause and recognize the community members who make the neighborhood a better place, each and every day. Who contributed time and effort to planning that great event, or helping out a fellow resident in tough times? Maybe it's that person's positive spirit that impacts the community. Perhaps the person you're thinking of performs one of those "thankless" jobs we just can't live without.
No matter the reason, we'd like to hear about him or her, so go ahead and nominate a person using the form below.
Be sure to nominate someone by 5 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 30 At that time, we will take the suggestions and ask readers to weigh in on the nominations. We'll announce the 2012 Chestnut Hill Patch People of the Year soon after.
