Patchogue Patch is a 24/7 news destination for the Patchogue-Medford area. We will bring you all of the details about the latest happenings in the Patchogue area; from Board of Education meetings, Village Board meetings, the latest developments in town, and even fun events like Alive After Five or shows at the Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts. Our mission is to inform the community about everything going on in the area as it happens, while it is happening. And as we are a website, in addition to photos we are also able to post video, pdf, and any other necessary media to tell our stories.
We also want this website to become a central place for the community to see what is going on, and as a result the website is actually completely interactive. You can add your events to our calendar, post your announcements (such as a yard sale, a wedding, recent accomplishments, etc), and even add your own photos and videos to our articles.
Additionally, you can "Like" us on facebook (facebook.com/patchoguepatch) or follow us on twitter @PatchoguePatch (twitter.com/patchoguepatch) to get our most recent headlines and updates on what we are covering as it happens delivered straight to your feed.
