I'm new at Patch, but I've lived in Yorkshire (the city between Man. Park and Centreville) my whole life. I'm having trouble getting a good description of Patch, and what exactly it is. I understand that among other things Patch is a truly local news service (as opposed to "local" news that covers Virgina and Maryland). What more to Patch is there then that? In particular what does the Manassas Park Patch community do, and is there something I can do to help?
