Goodbye, Sayville

Today is my last day at Sayville Patch.

Today is my last day as editor of Sayville Patch and I write this editorial with fond memories of the past 16-months.

Since Sayville Patch launched last June, we have published more than 2,300 articles and announcements relevant to Sayville and I have met some amazing people throughout the journey.

I would like to thank the Sayville Community for your openness. It has been such a pleasure to cover Sayville and the community has been so supportive of Patch. I found out first-hand why Sayville is the Friendliest Town in America. The fire department, school district, Chamber of Commerce, library, many civic groups as well as the residents have been a pleasure to work with and joy to get to know. Sayville is such a vibrant community thanks to the dedicated people that live here.

I want to thank Alycia Broderick, Sayville Patch’s amazing freelancer who has a love and passion for what she does as well as this community, which she calls home. Thanks also to Kristin Karnay, the calendar editor, who has done a great job of keeping you informed of what’s happening in Sayville, as well as the team of freelance writers, photographers and bloggers who have helped build the site into a valuable source of local news.

I also want to thank my Senior Regional Editor David Reich-Hale, Regional Editor Greg Sleter and Associate Regional Editor Ryan Bonner for their guidance, patience and assistance. Also, my fellow editors have been a great source of support and have become friends in the process. Thank you.

It was a pleasure working with all of you and I wish Sayville Patch great success. Please continue to email ryan@patch.com and gregory.sleter@patch.com with all of your news, information and announcements and I hope to see you around town.
