Why is this just being mentioned today when the deadline is today? Shame...Seems Patch has been slacking since change of editor. Somthing such as Turkey Donations in Peekskill should be more visible than links connecting to New Rochelle Patch or stuff going on in Rockland. Just disappointed, really should try to push more local things.

Sorry for the late notice Danny. The organizers were delayed due to Sandy and I didn't find out until Sunday night.
