Saying Goodbye to Burr Ridge

A word of thanks from outgoing editor Sabrina Wu.

When I took over the Burr Ridge Patch site a little more than a year ago, I didn't know what to expect. I was moving from the Hinsdale site, which grew by about 3,000 unique readers every month, to cover a tight-knit community of 10,559 residents. I hoped for the best, but never expected to fall in love with a community.

As I leave now to manage the Darien and Woodridge sites and hopefully take them to the next level as well, I get kind of teary thinking of some of the people I've met and the stories that I've covered over the past year. It means a lot to me to see that the site and its Facebook page have more than tripled in new readers in the short time I was here. Thank you—for making Burr Ridge feel like a little piece of home.

The people of Burr Ridge are terrific, and I have loved getting to know you and your stories. I will always consider it an honor and a privilege that you trusted me enough to share parts of your lives with me.

@RichardFitzgerald: Thank you very much. I know I'm leaving the site in good hands with Joe O'Donnell. Thanks again.

@EviePolsley: Thanks very much! I'll miss working with Loyola too! I'll probably still be in touch, since the Loyola Center in Darien moved to Burr Ridge, and there may be some overlap. :)
