Celebrating One Year of Eagle Rock Patch

We celebrate our first birthday with a look back at some of the issues and articles that have defined our community.

For a brief moment after midnight on Wednesday, the digital clock that relentlessly drives this site stopped ticking and something wonderful happened: Eagle Rock Patch turned one year old.

Yes, incredible as it sounds, a full year has gone by since we launched on Nov. 3, 2010—and what’s truly astonishing about this milestone is how far we’ve come in terms of increasing our readership as well as developing a shared relationship as residents and stakeholders in Eagle Rock.

None of that would have been possible without the engagement—day in and day out—of our readers. Your comments, critiques, news tips and blogs are the lifeblood of this site and clearly the greatest measure of our growth.

So let’s take a moment to reflect on some of the articles—and blogs—that have defined our community platform over the past year:

A Century of Eagle Rock History

Tribes of Eagle Rock

The Greening of Occidental College

From Red Aunts to Auntie Em’s

Bringing Comedy to Mayberry
