Last night, the Press Club of Long Island 2011 Media Awards took place at the Woodbury Country Club, and Patchers received a non-too-shabby count of 13 awards in online categories! Congratulations to our New York reporters and photographers, Chris R. Vaccaro, Geoffrey Walter, Adina Genn, Taylor K. Vecsey, John Stefans, Mary Ellen Walsh, Jason Molinet, and Richard Slattery!
Patch's winning stories ran the gamut from a 911 call that included the wrong address and delayed help for a dying man, to a Seventh State Senate District race that was too close to call, to a humorous opinion column. Our LI gang garnered first, second, and third place awards in over eight categories.
Richard Slattery of Huntington Patch won an online award for this photo of Town Board Votes Down Avalon Bay Resolution
Aglow with green pride, we are.
