West Deptford Patch Turns 1 Today

Give us a shout out to help us celebrate our first birthday!

A year ago, things were very different here: ; no one was calling me "Mr. Patch" or making jokes about how I seemed to show up everywhere, all the time.

Here's a look back at some of the stories (though barely a sliver) that have shaped what West Deptford Patch has become as we strive to be a hub for all things local.

Feel free to let us know in the comments below how we're doing, what you'd like to see more of (or less of) or any other ideas you might have that could make West Deptford Patch a better website for the community.

As always, you can reach me at bryan.littel@patch.com at any time.

Happy 1st Anniversary WD Patch, seems like I have been a reader for more than a year, hard to believe it's only been that short of a time. Keep up the good work, truly enjoyed the live blog feeds from the high school football games, especially the championship win!!! Looking forward to what 2012 has in store for all of us!!!

Bryan, Great job with The Patch!! You are not only informing the community, but those of us who are hundreds if not thousands of miles away. In the 20 years since I have left, I have never felt closer to my hometown. Thank you!
