The following information is included within Lexington Community Education's spring catalog.
Lexington Patch is a website dedicated to community-specific news and information that provides comprehensive local coverage for individuals and communities.
When used to potential, Patch provides a place where Lexingtonians can engage in conversation about stories, issues and ideas affecting their community, share their opinions, post photos and announcements, and add events to the community calendar.
While Patch sites are run by professional editors, writers, photographers and videographers who live in or near the communities they serve, the true purpose and aim is to be “for the people and by the people." Patch provides news and information, but also welcomes everyone in the community to take ownership of this platform by getting engaged and sharing news, opinions, events, announcements and images that matter to you and your neighbors.
In this informational/demonstration session you will learn just how easy it is to participate in your local and online community by using Patch as your personal community connecting tool. You will learn about blogging, commenting, posting pictures and video, privacy, polls, event listings and much more.
Join us this Thursday, May 3, from 7 to 8:30 p.m., at Lexington High School and find out how you can get your word out around town easily with the Lexington Patch. It's free. What do you have to lose?
