Great Stories

Do you know someone with a great story? We want to share it!

Everyone knows a great person with a great story. So, our concept is simple. Find amazing people in our community with great stories to tell and share those stories with everyone else.

We are looking for heroes, philanthropists, innovators, volunteers, good neighbours, visionaries, donors, adventurers, veterans or anyone you think is a great person with a unique story.

Submit a short summary that includes the name of the person and the story you think we should highlight. Give us your name and contact info as well as the contact for the person you want us to write about (or the best person to contact that can tell their story).
