Local Love Truro nominations launch Tuesday

Nominations for this year's Local Love Truro Awards open Tuesday morning at 8 a.m.

The nomination period for the second annual event runs until March 17th, with the form available at locallovetruro.ca, and voting will then run from early April until May 5th.

Event co-founder Michelle McCann says they hope the longer voting period will broaden their audience and really get people engaged and focused on who they are nominating, and then voting for, for each award.

The public is encouraged to nominate individuals or businesses in each of the fourteen categories to highlight who and what they love most about Truro.

New categories this year include Most Loved New Business and Most Loved Established Business.

Co-founder Samantha Madore says those seemed like a great additions to highlight businesses which have been a part of the community for years, and those who are just starting to make their mark.

The winners will be announced at the Local Love Truro Celebration on May 25th at the Marigold Cultural Centre.
