One of Patch’s newest features is the “Boards,” an engaging platform that lets readers toss up quick news on everything from school board action opinions to event listings to alerts about neighborhood issues.
For example, one Patch reader wondered what a horrid smell was in her neighborhood this week.
Another post alerted readers to a great performance by the Jay Scott Band this weekend.
Some readers use the boards to share insight about new business and entrepreneur efforts. A recent one offered up homemade afghans that may be the perfect gift to send off with that college-bound freshman.
Another board note teases readers to guess who’ll be the special guest signing autographs at a local street fair later this month.
It’s also a great place to share photos and insight on local parks and entertainment. One mom shared why the Holtsville Ecology Park is a great summer time attraction and even posted some fabulous photos to prove it.
The Boards are a great place for business to talk about new services and even list job openings, as this local graphic design shop did this week.
So next time you’re on your hometown Patch, check out the Boards!
