If we can get the Western Springs Facebook page to 450 likes by the end of September, I will not only let the Village public drench me with water balloons, I'll film it and put it up here!
As of writing, the Western Springs Patch Facebook page has 318 likes. While this means 318 totally awesome people like us, and that's terrific, we're still trailing well behind, say, Oak Lawn Patch's Facebook, which boasts a whopping 1,579.

If we can get another 132 Facebook likes over the next two months—get to 450 before the end of September—I will, and I swear by this, fill a couple hundred water balloons, go to an appropriate place in Western Springs that I will announce here in advance, and film myself being pelted with them by random Village passerby (and you!), then I will post the video here for the entertainment of all. It's the Drench-an-Editor extravaganza! For …

So, Walsh decided to hire a teen to manage her company's social media sites, and since then, she said she's had more time for her other work and the site has seen its online network grow exponentially. [Miller] is very responsible," Walsh said. "She follows through and has made a really big impact. We've seen our reach increase significantly since Katie has been on board." For many business owners, …
