The Daily News will unveil its annual Profiles edition in Saturday’s paper. The 140-page magazine will give readers an in-depth look at Galveston County communities and the progress made in the last year. Sections featured in Profiles this year will be Communities, Business, Industry, Education, Health & Fitness, Recreation & Entertainment, and Citizen of the Year.


This is the exact feeling we hope many of you will have when you get your hands on the big 2014 Profiles book from The Galveston County Daily News.

It will be in Saturday’s edition.

Did we say big? With 140 oversized magazine pages of information on our home community, this is pretty much a one-stop publication for anyone wanting to learn more about Galveston County.

With sections focusing on Communities, Business, Industry, Education, Health & Fitness, and Recreation & Entertainment, we at The Galveston County Daily News are proud to showcase our community like never before.

Inside, you find interesting and moving stories about people, businesses and what we like to call Everyday Heroes — select individuals quietly doing remarkable things in our community. We hope you’ll be inspired by each of their stories.

And to top it off, we are going to recognize a man who helped shape the landscape of Galveston Island with all his heart — George Mitchell. With his passing brings to a close to our opportunity to thank this man for his love and passion for the island and region. He will be greatly missed but forever remembered for his vision and generosity.

Galveston County is a very special place and one we should all be proud to call this community our home. Celebrate with us.

On behalf of the entire staff here at The Galveston County Daily News and the generous advertisers who partnered with us to help make this special publication possible, we hope you, too, will say “wow.”’

Have a great day, Galveston County!
