April 21, 2011 was a big day. Just a little after 1 p.m., while on the phone with my regional editor Perry Parks and HQ in New York, we began the countdown - 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2 1 - hit it! With that, Loganville-Grayson Patch was launched - and the rest, as they say, is history.
We have grown a whole lot since then and there are so many people to thank for that. I would like to take this occasion to thank the contributors, the user, the readers, guest editors and fellow local editors - who so generously share pertinent information - for making Loganville-Grayson Patch such a great resource for the local community. On a personal note, I would like to thank Perry and the staff at Patch for making my job such a great one to have.
Now all that being said, we come to the real question – how to celebrate this special occasion? Grayson is taken care of. We will have a celebratory booth at the Grayson Day festival on April 28, so please stop by and visit a while. Our Loganville plans, however, developed a kink a couple of weeks ago with the closing of Time Well Spent. Patch Ad manager Melissa Collins and I had planned a sort of reception there on Aril 23 or 24 for you to stop by and visit with us. So now we are looking for an alternative location where we can set up shop, just for a couple of hours, on one of those days. Any ideas?
We are hoping to give you the opportunity to meet some of those Local Voices who have shared their opinions with you over the past year. Please let us know any suggestions you might have.
