Today is the day! We turned one-years-old here in Limerick.
It was on this day, one year ago, that LRSC Patch was born. The site made its launch under former editor David Powell, who worked diligently for six months to get the name out and the news out to the people of the Spring-Ford area.

With the Montgomery County Republican ticket standing behind them, Jenny Brown and Bruce L. Castor Jr. held their first press conference, which aimed to solidify their stance and unify the party for the upcoming 2011 election in November. Standing inside the Swede Street entrance of the Montgomery County Courthouse, Montgomery County Republican Committee Chairman Bob Kerns began the press conference with a brief statement, introducing Brown and Castor and setting a tone for what seems likely to be a highly contested race against the Democratic ticket of Josh Shapiro and Leslie Richards. "We have two candidates as commissioners who I believe are the epitome of what is good about Montgomery County," said Kerns. "We are ready to go. We are …
