CV Patch Celebrates 2nd Anniversary!

It's been two years since we launched Chartiers Valley Patch, and since then I’ve reported on feel-good stories, heart-breaking tragedies and incidents that make you scratch your head. Click to read the Top 10 stories in 2012.

Today is the second anniversary since we launched Chartiers Valley Patch on Dec. 13, 2010!

Over the past two years, I’ve covered everything happening in Bridgeville, Collier, Heidelberg and Scott Township. Since then, I’ve reported on feel-good stories, heart-breaking tragedies and incidents that make you scratch your head.

We also stimulated conversations about the fate of Chartiers Valley school bus drivers, whether a local dad should have left his kids in Scott Park to shower and if students at a high school hockey game acted inappropriately.

We're working hard to make your life easy by providing news you can use, a business directory with information about places you go, real estate information if you're looking to buy or sell a home in the area, job listings and grocery specials.

We’re also giving you, the reader, more control to post information on our announcements page, share your opinions in the Local Voices blog section and upload events to our community calendar.

Thanks for reading over the past two years, and we’re looking forward to continue providing you with great news stories and community events during our third year! If you’re still new to our site, please watch our welcome video to learn how you can participate in the news and events on Chartiers Valley Patch!
