Cinnaminson Patch is a place for people who want to get things done. As you may have noticed, we have lots of opportunities to get you involved. Sure, it may be fun to read, but it's even better when you’re contributing to the conversation.

This is a place to post some great pictures from around town, it's a place to write reviews, it's a place to promote your business and it's a place to tell your stories.

There are so many ways to get involved. Here’s everything you can do on Cinnaminson Patch.

Get the news how you want it, when you want it

We publish new content daily. If it’s happening around Cinnaminson, it matters to us. You can always get the latest news by logging onto Cinnaminson Patch. We also have a daily newsletter with the day’s top stories and breaking news alerts. Sign up for the newsletter and breaking news alerts here.

Share your pictures

On every story, you have the option of uploading your own photos and videos. Did we cover a game and you got a great action shot? Or did you get a nice video clip from a parade? Look for the “upload photos and videos” button, under the photos on every story.

Our Pics & Clips gallery is perfect for shots that don’t necessarily fit into a story. If you saw something funny, interesting or shocking around town or just took a picture you want to share, add it to Pics & Clips.

Brag a little and share your news

Did your kid make the dean’s list or win an award? Did your business or group just promote someone? Have a press release to share? No need to wait for us—Patch is designed for you to share that with your neighbors in the announcements section, no middleman necessary. Here’s our how-to.

Get people to your event

Whether it’s a yard sale, school fundraiser, church activity or community meeting, our events calendar is the place to list it. Again, you can do this yourself. Here’s how to post calendar events.

E. Bennett—I got your news tip. I apologize for not emailing you back. However, I'm still working on a story about it. We're not just a quick-hit blog, we're a professional online newspaper. So I still have to report and get interviews and do a story. I'm working on that now. Thanks.
