End of 2011 Brings Changes for 2012
This week at Patch we spent much of our time reviewing the past year and looking forward to the new year.
This week on Patch we spent a lot of time reminiscing about Hopkinton Patch’s first year of existence.
We also spent a lot of time planning what’s going to happen next year. We’re looking ahead to the Boston Marathon in April, A big national election in November, and the end of the world in December (maybe).
We’re going to be trying some different things in the new year. We really want to start telling the stories about the people that make Hopkinton such a great place to live and work.
We also want to get more readers involved in the conversation regarding town both on the site and off. Blogging is not only a great way to tell your story as a resident of town, but it’s also a great way to bring up different stories that we might not know about.
Hopefully getting people talking on the site will help start more conversations started on Facebook and Twitter. If you have a question send us a tweet and we will try to answer it, or post it on our Facebook wall.
We think if people on Patch are having a discussion about what’s going on around them it will help make every day life in town ridiculously easy and more enjoyable.
There are some big issues coming to face the town: the Center School project, the potential changes for Main Street, a shift in the town’s representation and a budget that could have major impacts all over town, and we want to make sure everyone understands all of the different sides to a story.
We hope you all have a happy New Year, and thank you for being Patch readers.
