A form on the organization’s website, www.bestofeastyork.com, can be filled out online or downloaded, printed out and mailed in. The deadline for receipt of nominations is December 31.

Meanwhile the organization has also come up with a way to help keep the former borough’s identity fresh by offering copies of its flag for sale. There are two versions: the 54” x 27” flags suitable for displaying on a pole for $60 each (including tax) or desk flags, including a base on which to mount them for purchased for $12. Both can be purchased for $65 says Justin Van Dette, president of the organization.
