A Fond Farewell

Starting Monday, Jan. 7, Mark Ouellette will be leaving Stoneham Patch to become the editor of the Melrose and Winchester Patch sites.

After more than two years at the helm, I will be leaving Stoneham Patch to become the editor of the Melrose and Winchester Patch sites starting Monday, Jan. 7.

It's been a great experience working with and getting to know so many of you since I first launched the Stoneham Patch site on Dec. 21, 2010. I sincerely appreciate all your feedback and contributions to Stoneham Patch these past few years, and without your help the site would not be where it is today.

Since its inception, Stoneham Patch has provided live coverage of major storms, elections, Town Meetings as well as one-on-one chats with local officials. I’ve enjoyed meeting many of you at various events, including school plays and high school graduation, Stoneham Town Day and Light It Up Blue Stoneham, to name a few.

While I may be taking over two other Patch sites and leaving Stoneham Patch, you may still see my name pop up on the site every now and again. You’re always welcome to say hello at mark.ouellette@patch.com.

The Future of Stoneham Patch

Moving forward, Stoneham Patch will be run by a team of editors to continue to bring you the news of the day. However, it’s important to remember that the website isn’t just a news site, but rather a community website where you can contribute your photos, videos, events, announcements and blogs. Your contributions are an integral part of what Patch is all about, and we want this site to be a meeting place of sorts where you can connect with folks in and around the community. If you are new to the site, I’d recommend checking out this post to learn how to do some of the activities I mentioned above.

If you need assistance with anything, don't hesitate to send an email to stoneham@patch.com and one of our editors will be in touch.

Again, thank you all for your contributions to Stoneham Patch and I hope you have a happy New Year.
