Montrosians Invited to Voice Their Community Pride
Montrose, CO – Montrose residents have an opportunity to express pride of community by participating in the city’s 2017 celebration of Colorado Cities and Towns week (September 11-17). Enthusiasts can take part in three ways: (1) write a short paragraph about why you love Montrose, (2) compose a brief paragraph about what the “Montrose Lifestyle” means to you, and (3) indulge your fondness for social media by crafting a creative social media post (in videos, photos, or text) expressing your positive feelings about life in Montrose using the tags #MontroseCO and #MontroseLifestyle.
“As the Visit Montrose team works on defining the Montrose Lifestyle, we want to reach out to our community and ask for help to refine the idea and add personal perspectives,” said Rob Joseph, assistant city manager and director of the Montrose Office of Business and Tourism. “The Montrose Lifestyle is a concept we’re using to explain the ideal mix of business culture and Colorado living that makes Montrose attractive to visitors, residents and those interested in relocating to the area. We’re excited to hear about what makes living in Montrose special.”
The Montrose City Council will review the responses and award prizes to the top two entries in each method of participation. First place winners in each receive $100 in Montrose Bucks and second place winners receive $50 gift certificates for merchandise at the Downtown Visitor Center. Participants can submit entries in one or more areas.
Winners will be announced during the celebration week and entries will be featured on CityofMontrose.org
and social media. Prizes will be awarded at the City Council meeting on September 19.
Entries along with contact information can be delivered to City Hall (433 S. First Street), emailed to email@example.com with “I Love Montrose” in the subject line, or posted to social media with the tags #MontroseCO and #MontroseLifestyle
. Entries must be received no later than 6 p.m. on Monday, September 11, to be eligible for prizes.
Colorado Cities & Towns Week is an annual celebration designed by the Colorado Municipal League to celebrate municipal government’s important role in providing essential services, fostering a healthy local economy, and elevating the quality of life for everyone in the community.
