Buckhead Patch Celebrates First Birthday Today
We've been serving Buckhead community since Dec. 15, 2010
Buckhead Patch began operations on Dec. 15, 2010, with coverage of former President George Bush and former first lady Laura Bush appearing at a book signing at Borders.
Alas, Borders is no more, one of the many stories we've covered over the year. The 500th AOL-backed Patch site to go live nationally, Buckhead Patch joined a number of Georgia Patches giving in-depth local coverage. In metro Atlanta, other Patch sites celebrating their first birthdays this holiday season include Cascade, Midtown, Sandy Springs, Virginia-Highland, Smyrna-Vinings, East Atlanta, Decatur, Brookhaven, Dunwoody and Druid Hills, among others covering Georgia cities, towns and neighborhoods.
Since going live in 2010, we have reported every day on Buckhead news and events. With information on shopping, traffic, crime, politics, schools, art, business, restaurants, neighborhoods, sports, community organizations, government, weather, entertainment and home and family, we hope we are an essential part of your daily lives.
We offer an in-depth directory of businesses and community institutions, and a comprehensive events calendar. During the year, you have shared your events, announcements, comments and information. You've given your thoughts and opinions as community bloggers and through letters to the editor.
For our birthday, we will a look back at the year through photos and offer a list of the top 10 stories of the year. Let us know what you think about our Top 10 list and whether any other stories should be included.
Thanks to you for returning to our site each day and sharing your photos, videos, announcements, events, comments and news suggestions. This is your site, and we want to do more to make it the meeting place for community conversation and ideas. Please let us know what we can do to make Buckhead Patch better.
The year has gone by quickly, and a new, exciting year will be arriving soon. We'll be here to cover what's going on in Buckhead, day by day.
