Patch is bestowing this inaugural honor, but we need you to decide who it is.

Parsippany-Troy Hills has had quite a year, hasn't it?

We're just weeks away from turning the page on 2013, a year in which we saw great accomplishments and, sadly, lost loved neighbors.

So, we're asking you, our readers, to nominate a "Person of the Year" for 2013. 

We're not limiting nominations to single persons, however. Maybe it's a group of volunteers who helped the township. Maybe it's a business that made a difference in the community too big to ignore. 

Or, maybe you want to honor someone posthumously, such as the beloved James Vigilante or U.S. Army Sgt. Derek McConnell.

Consider the nomination period open right now. Post your thoughts in the comments section below. We won't have a vote-off unless it's too close to call, so the total number of nominations for a person, group or business on this thread will be our honoree.

We look forward to your nominations and, as always, thanks for your participation.

I would like to nominate the members of the Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany as Citizen of the Year. in 2013 this organization sponsored over 500 school age children in 13 different service clubs, provided 100 new blankets and food cards to the Community Center, cooked 12 meals at the Morris County Homeless Solutions, provided Christmas Gifts for all the children at the Parsippany Day Care Center, had a work day and cleaned up multiple sites in town, raised $7,500 to help support new Hospice unit at Morristown Hospital, and gave contributions to 25 other local not-for-profit agencies.
