What are your 25?

Published 6:21 pm Saturday, October 27, 2012

Taking a page from a successful and popular Suffolk Living magazine feature from earlier this year, the Suffolk News-Herald will celebrate “25 Reasons We Love Suffolk” for the annual edition of Strides, which is due out in February.

Having published a set of essays by folks from Suffolk in the January/February edition of Suffolk Living magazine this year, staff members were looking for a fresh way to re-address what was a favorite topic both in the newspaper offices and among readers.

Strides is a bit like the newspaper’s annual ode to the city, so it seemed like the perfect place to revisit and expand on the things we love about Suffolk,” Editor Res Spears said.

“Through the years, we’ve used this special section and the Horizons section that it replaced as a way to highlight many of the things that make Suffolk special. This year, we’re going to focus on the way those special things connect with our hearts to make us fall in love with this wonderful city.”

Readers are encouraged to participate in the section this year by helping the newspaper’s staff choose the 25 top reasons we love Suffolk. Readers can email suggestions to news@suffolknewsherald.com, they can call Spears at 934-9611 or they can post ideas to the SNH Facebook page.

Whether it’s a person, place or thing — or maybe something less tangible — there’s a reason people so often wind up staying in Suffolk once they’re here. Here’s your chance to share your ideas.

The section publishes Feb. 24, but nominations should be in by Nov. 10.
