It feels like mere weeks since October when we launched San Lorenzo Patch. Nine months later, it's hard to say goodbye.
It's with a heavy heart that I let you know that Friday will be my last day as editor of San Lorenzo Patch. It's been a wild ride, and I've relished the opportunity to cover such a diverse and dynamic community.
I remember my first visit to San Lorenzo like it was yesterday: America was making its last desperate bid for the World Cup, an event I'd been covering sporadically at the New York Daily News.
I caught a few minutes of the match alongside a handful of rabid fans at Soccer Nation, then headed up the block to for lunch, where my boyfriend and I shared a kiss and a crepe. Although I didn't know it then, less than a year later, we would be married.
How time flies, eh?
Although I'll be gone, you can count on our crack team of reporters and editors to keep bringing you the same up-to-the-minute local news and information. We look forward to announcing a new editor in the coming days.
Goodbye, San Lorenzo. I'll miss you.
