3. And congratulations to Oakdale Principal Mark Johnson, who posted the announcement of Lily's achievement! Principal Johnson is one of many folks taking advantage of the Montville Patch to post event listings and announcements of important things happening in their lives and at their workplaces. Want to post an announcement yourself? It's easy! Here's how to do it:

  • Go to the Montville Patch  -- and log in, or register, if you haven't already (look in the upper right corner of the page for the login/register spot)
  • Click here to create a new Announcement - or just pull down in the blue bar at the top of the page under "News" to "Announcements."
  • Make sure to add the photos where it says "Choose file to upload." A great photo means more eyes on your announcement!
  • When you've finished, send an email to me at carrie.jacobson@patch.com and let me know that you've posted an announcement, and I'll feature it prominently on the Montville Patch home page!

4. I'll be holding office hours today from 4-6 p.m. in the cafe area of the Uncasville Stop & Shop! Please come on in, say hi, visit for a while. I'll show you how to post an event, sign up for a newsletter, become a blogger!

5. Send me your love story! carrie.jacobson@patch.com!
