Week in Review: The Debut of Odenton Patch

The first week of Odenton Patch was a full one.

Odenton Patch has finished it first week of existence. We're having fun and hope you're enjoying what we're offering.

There was no shortage of activity around town to cover right from the start.

We started off Wednesday by offering you the results from Tuesday's primary elections and followed Thursday with coverage of a candidates' forum.

We offered an update on the progress of the Odenton Town Center (yes, it's coming) and profiled some efforts by real estate brokers to test out the town's amenities.

Our financial columnist wrote about the new Royal Farms at the corner of Annapolis Road and Blue Water Boulevard being a big hit.

Arundel High has a new global signature program and an energetic new band director. And their football and soccer teams are both off to good starts.

We profiled the expansion efforts of one church in the heart of Odenton, while also exploring the history of a church located off the beaten path.

We offered some ideas on where to shop for healthy, organic and local food, and recommended the new Caribbean restaurant in town. And we profiled a growing company cashing in on the popularity of e-readers.

The Odenton Heritage Society had a silent auction to raise money for renovations to the Old Masonic Hall. And the Waugh Chapel Elementary School PTA is moving closer to its goal of raising money for a new playground.

It was a quiet summer, crime-wise in Odenton, but police have been busy this week looking for three men in connection with a sexual assault in Odenton on the morning of Sept. 11.
