For nearly a week, Patch readers have been uploading photos. We've crowned our winner.
In our photo contest this week, readers from all over the region shared with us photos that illustrate Thanksgiving. But we could only choose one.

Nicole, we'll be emailing you so we can make arrangements to get you your $25 gift card. Return to Patch tomorrow, when you can start uploading pictures for our next …

Peruse our handy list of what's open and closed for the holiday, and if you know of a place we've missed, add it in the comments.
Happy Thanksgiving! Because of the holiday, it won't be business as usual in Grafton—but there are still some places open should you need to grab a cup of coffee or something at the convenience store. We've compiled a list of what's open and what's closed. If we've missed anything, please add it in the comments. What's Closed? What's Open?
From our logo to our readers, I have reasons to be thankful this Thanksgiving.
My family's Thanksgiving tradition, which I'm sure many families share, is to go around the table and name at least one thing, or person, for which we're thankful. The activity doesn't always produce the most heartwarming responses; it's typical for at least one wise-guy to smirk and say something along the lines of, "I'm thankful Danielle didn't cook the meal." (Culinary prowess is not a trait for which I'm known.) As I pondered what I'll be sharing at the table today, I got to thinking that the question would be appropriate as it relates to Patch. So, let me extend my family tradition to this virtual gathering-place, and share with you five Patch-related things that make me thankful. This is by no means an exhaustive list, as I do have …
