When I was handed the keys to Natick Patch by my good friend, Alissa Letkowski, I was ready for a new challenge, a new adventure and a way to improve my abilities as a young journalist.
I am happy to report that my time spent in this town has exceeded all of my expectations. Natick's people were warm and welcoming from the start and the community that exists here is truly extraordinary.
In my year with Patch I have cultivated a passion for visual journalism - using photos and video to tell a story - and that is what I am leaving Natick Patch to pursue.
In my new role I will be a photographer and video producer for the area's Patch sites. I will take the reigns of the Dover-Sherborn and Westwood sites to keep me busy between photographs.
Your new editor will be Robert Rosen, who will bring you a higher-volume of Natick news than I have in the past few months while my role was morphing into that of a regional photographer.
I would like to say thank you to all of my friends I have made in the past few months. It has been a pleasure to report on this extraordinary town.
If you want to see what I'm up to, feel free to follow me on twitter @justinsaglio.
You will still see me around town shooting photos and making videos so I won't say goodbye. But until next time - see you later, Natick Patch.
