It's Patch's 2nd Birthday — Join the Celebration!

Thank you to all who contributed to Buffalo Grove Patch's growth this year.

Cake, anyone? Ice cream? There's a good excuse to celebrate — Buffalo Grove Patch is 2 years old today!

This site, which I affectionately refer to as my baby, has experienced much growth since Sept. 7, 2010, in both its design and in the number of community members who come here to find local news and share their own announcements, photos and opinions. And, like any other 2-year-old, it will continue to grow and change as we strive to make information available to you and offer a platform for you to discuss all things Buffalo Grove.

Thank you to all who visit Patch to find local news and to those of you who join online discussions, post blogs, share announcements and events, and upload photos. You are a caring, intelligent, creative, informative and entertaining bunch. You are the fabric of this community and of Buffalo Grove Patch.

I look forward to continuing to serve you, and I welcome your continued engagement, as we embark on our “Terrific Twos.” (I’m pretty strict with my baby — no tantrums or other terrible behavior will be tolerated.)

Patch is always here when you want to find out what’s new in town, hear what your neighbors have to say or share your own opinions or news.

Please take a moment to review our terms of use, and then jump right into the conversation using these links:

Thanks again for all you do for Patch. It's because of this great community that we have a reason to celebrate today!

By "no tantrums or other terrible behavior will be tolerated", does that mean no more L.S.? :)

Thanks, everyone! (Sorry for the delayed reaction - this 2-year-old is keeping me busy!)
