Quartzsite, AZ- Shanana "Rain" Golden-Bear, publisher of Desert Messenger, Quartzsite's FREE Community Paper, announced today there's a new feature for the upcoming season called, "The Best of Quartzsite!"
"It's about time we recognize what is Right in Quartzsite, and celebrate the hard working individuals and businesses in our community," said Golden-Bear.
Readers will be able to vote in a myriad of possible categories; everything from their favorite place to enjoy Biscuits and Gravy to the best retailer to purchase an RV. Other categories might include: favorite hairstylist, best Karaoke, favorite ATV trail, best restaurant server, favorite swap meet, best food vendor, favorite jeweler, etc.
"This is something I've had on the back burner since 2008, and feel it is time to take advantage of all the publicity Quartzsite recently has been receiving," said Golden-Bear. "I've witnessed other communities have a lot of fun with the voting, and hope Quartzsite residents and visitors will embrace the concept."
Desert Messenger's 8th season begins September 7th. The 2011-2012 Advertising Rate Card and Deadline Schedule will be available online no later than August 7th at http://www.DesertMessenger.com
If readers have ideas for categories that are unique to Quartzsite, please submit them via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The more participation, the more fun for all! Details will be published in the September 7th issue of the Desert Messenger.
Winners will be showcased in a special edition this season!
