Happy Birthday to Los Altos Patch!

We turn 2 today, and are proud to be a part of daily life in Los Altos and Los Altos Hills. All Los Altos and Los Altos Hills. All the time.


It's our birthday. Los Altos Patch turns 2 today!

Has it really been two years? Wow.

Thank you to all of you in Los Altos and Los Altos Hills for your support as we become part of the local scene. Los Altos Patch isn't just a news website, it's a community gathering spot. It's your place to share ideas and events important to you and your neighbors, and we hope you're using your ability to bring your own news to your neighbors.

Had a favorite story, photo or video this year? No need to send it to the editor to put it on Patch. With our content management system you can use our "Pics 'n Clips" section above to directly upload those images and tell us about it! (Insider hint: Once you've uploaded pictures and detailed captions telling us "who-what-where-why-when," your friendly Patch editor will be happy to feature it, nice and big, on the home page!).

Have ideas for what to cover in the coming year? We'd like to hear them.

Here's to many more years of Los Altos Patch!

Thank you, Ginny! That is a high compliment. I love covering Los Altos, and I wish I could clone myself because there is a lot going on here!

Congratulations on two great years in Los Altos and Los Altos Hills, L.A. You've done a great job providing a daily local voice for the two very active communities; professionally, it's always fascinating to discover what you've unearthed and published in the morning newsletter and in your updates throughout the day. Happy Birthday!

Congrats, L.A.! The Patch is a great local resource. I love the very timely coverage of very local events and the way you are beginning to engage members of the local community. We are also fortunate to have you as the editor - an experienced newspaper woman (ink-stained as you say!) who finds interesting stories for us and is responsive to your readers. Happy Bday.

Congratulations! Thank you so much for providing an outlet for so many in the community!

Thanks to my Patch colleagues, who are the best a gal could have. And thank you, @Karen Janowski and @Freya Hooper! If those two names sound familiar Patch readers, it's because they contribute to Los Altos life—and Los Altos Patch—in different ways. Both blog for Patch -- Karen under the GreenTown Los Altos banner, and Freya under the One Great Book title.
