Today, Solon Patch celebrated its first anniversary, and it was definitely a successful event.
We gave away coffee courtesy of on Aurora Road. We handed out Patch swag and signed up interested readers for our .
Those lucky folks got a chance to be entered into a drawing for a $25 D&R Bagels gift certificate. We've jumbled up the entries and the winner is...Denise Maiorana!
Congratulations Denise! You'll receive an e-mail shortly to find out how we'll get this gift certificate into your hands!
The best part of Patchiversary for me was talking to the great readers who had already discovered Solon Patch and wanted to stop in to chat. Thanks to Nancy Falck, who let me take her picture. Thanks to Bridget Cole Williams, for forwarding the newsletter to her husband. And thanks to Pat Confroy for reminding me about the time I first met her a year ago when I was a rookie Patch editor.
Most of all, thanks to the Solon community for reading and contributing so much to make our first year successful. Our goal is to connect you with the community, and you've made our first year chasing that goal fun, exciting and rewarding.
