Welcome to Bolingbrook Patch! You've made it! I've made it! We've all made it!
My name is Brian Feldt (the strikingly handsome fellow in the Welcome Video). I am your very own local editor — a Bolingbrook butler of news and information, if you will — ready to immediately and thoroughly present the news that matters most to you as it happens.
That's right, real time.
Unlike traditional newspapers, Patch is exclusively online. That means we can bring you the news more quickly and have unlimited space to fill your information appetite.
Throughout the exhaustingly hot summer months, I've been gearing up to bring you this one-of-a-kind site that is truly your one-stop hub for all things Bolingbrook.
Looking for local family-friendly events? We have you covered. Want to know the latest sports scores and schedules? You can count on us. Have something really important to say and need an outlet? We're just one click away.
At Patch, we offer a variety of services that make your community experience that much better. You can browse our events page, post important announcements for free or add your opinion to the stories we write by posting a comment or writing a column.
I'd like to say I did this all on my own, but I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the help I've had from a talented supporting cast that's put in countless hours to make this site worthwhile.
And after months of late nights, long days and endless amounts of caffeine, I'm proud to bring you Bolingbrook Patch.
I hope to see you around here early and often as we start to make a name for ourselves around the community.
If you have something important to tell us, you can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 630-359-7800.
And, as always, happy reading!
