1ST ANNIVERSARY: 10 Ways To Use Perry Hall Patch

One year since launch, Patch is here to help you interact with the community.

Perry Hall Patch turns 1 year old today! 

From to to , Patch has this community covered. But on the site's first anniversary, I wanted to remind you why this site exists and what it's all about.

Simply put, it's about you.

Try one of these quick and easy tips to better use Patch to benefit yourself and the community:

1. Comment on an Article

We believe news is a conversation. Share your thoughts and reactions to articles by directly below each story.  

2. Ask a Question

Patch's Q&A section is the place for you to ask your questions and show off your expertise. Visit http://perryhall.patch.com/questions to ask a question or answer someone else's.

3. Post an Event

Is there a garage sale or community fundraiser coming up? If it's not on our Patch calendar, it should be. Feel free to add events to our site at http://perryhall.patch.com/events/new.

4. Send a News Tip

At the bottom of the homepage is a link that says, "Send Us News Tips." Tell us about stories we should cover. Your tip will be sent straight to me, Perry Hall Patch's (incredibly grateful) editor.

5. Post an Announcement

Post births, engagements, wedding announcements and more. Just remember, our Terms of Service say announcements should be for personal use and not for advertising. 

6. Sign Up for Newsletters

The daily Perry Hall Patch newsletter brings you all articles and announcements that have been posted in the last 24 hours. Look for the Follow Us and Newsletter links in the right column of this and nearly every page.

10. Send a Letter to the Editor

Every member of the Perry Hall community is invited to submit a letter to the editor. Express your thoughts or concerns about anything and we'll consider posting it. Make sure it's not longer than 300 words and email it to me at emilyk@patch.com.
