Thank You 1,000 times

Thank you 1,000 times over for supporting Petworth News! It's a nice birthday present to have the Facebook page hit 1,000 Likes. 

I hope the blog here at PetworthNews.org and on Facebook continues to be useful to the community.

Be sure to come out to Petworth Citizen on Monday, June 29th at 6pm to celebrate!

Mildly interesting side note: the 1,000th Like was Katie Ashmore (thanks Katie!) then someone unliked the page, bringing it back to 999, then Dan Hausman brought it back to 1,000 (thanks Dan!) and Jeff Davis was 1,001 (thanks Jeff!).
