Georgetown Patch will still be here tomorrow, but someone else will be calling the shots. Today, Oct. 1, marks my last day as your Georgetown Patch editor, a role I have enjoyed for the past three years.
I first launched Georgetown Patch in September 2010. In three years Patch went from being a site no one had ever heard of to a resource many people turn to for news in the Georgetown and Glover Park communities.
Credit for that success is due to the active and passionate people who make up your neighborhoods. Without the ANCs and citizens associations, without the PTAs and non-profits, without the interested neighbors and hard-working small business owners, this site could not exist.
Thank you for including Georgetown Patch in important moments in your community: from the ribbon cutting at the restored library, to the ground breaking on the O & P Street project, to a terrible flood and an impressive recovery at the waterfront, to the Campus Plan hearings and agreement and so much more. I'll miss bringing you community news every day.
I will also miss the smaller moments too, like handing out balloons at concerts in the park, chatting at fundraisers for great local causes, cheering along at the Glover Park Softball playoffs and just running into you and your families on the street as you go about your days.
