Hey Tewksbury! It's Been Grand and It's Only Getting Better!
With the 1,000th article published, Tewksbury Patch is ready to unveil new features.
On Aug. 20, 2010, Patch was officially introduced to the residents of Tewksbury.
We launched with an array of stories touching on different aspects of life in this vibrant suburban community.
What you are reading right now is the 1,000th article to appear on Tewksbury Patch over the course of just five months. In those 1,000 articles, we have published well over 1,000 photos, scores of videos and have mentioned thousands of Tewksbury residents, young and old, by name.
In my Welcome Video, I promised that Tewksbury Patch would offer a comprehensive view of life in Tewksbury, and I believe we are well on our way to achieving that objective.
We've offered an in depth look at town government, sports, schools, politics, the economy, lifestyle and public safety.
We hope that some of our articles, such as our series of winter safety tips, have provided useful information for your day-to-day life. But we also hope that some of features, such as "Where is it?" and our photo contests, have provided some good old fashioned fun. But every one of these 1,000 articles has had one thing in common -- they have been all about life in Tewksbury.
And if I might be so bold as to quote the legendary Bachman Turner Overdrive -- "You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet!"
Tewksbury Patch is preparing to launch several new initiatives this week, including a package of Mom/Family driven content on Wednesday. We will also be proudly introducing our new Tewksbury Mom's Council.
In the coming days and weeks, we will also be unveiling new video features, as well as features focusing on the Real Estate market, outstanding young people, weekend activities and the best of Tewksbury.
But don't worry, our aded content won't take away from the breaking news, local information, sports, weather and lifestyle content that you've come to enjoy and depend on. In the coming weeks, we'll be taking an in-depth look at what the town's budget challenges mean to your everyday life and will be continuing our up-to-the-minute coverage of this crazy winter weather.
We'rer also preparing to offer you comprehensive coverage of what promises to be an exciting municipal election/Town meeting season. We'll be giving you all the information you need to make informed decisions.
On a personal note, I'd like to offer my sincerest thanks you you, our readers, for making these first five months and 1,000 articles an amazing adventure.
I can't wait to find out what the next thousand articles will bring. Hop on board, it promises to be a wild ride!
