The main photo on the story may be great, but it’s not the winner. Click on the photos to see the winner.
Congratulations to Michele Ippoliti. She is the winner of this week’s Patch Picture of the Week contest with her picture of Michael Ippoliti, on the football field. Michael is entering his fourth year with the Conestoga Generals in Berwyn and passionate about football. Coming in a close second this week was Kelly Cortese’s picture of Courtney Cortese in the pool. Courtney is on the Great Valley High School swim team, as well as the Chester Valley Golf Club Swim Team. As usual, there were some great pictures this week and I’m glad I didn’t have to pick the winner. It’s great to watch the best compete in the Olympics in London, but it’s also wonderful to see the amazing talent we have here at home, some of whom could make their way to future…

Congratulations to Donna MacNeal, the winner of our Father’s Day Contest and $500. This is what Donna had to say about her father: I have to say I had the best dad in the world. When he was a young man he got laid off from his job and that was it, he decided to have his own company. My father started off with a small truck picking up trash and then he made his own company. (He wasn't the biggest company but certainly the best). He gave his children everything we needed. Love, support, a wonderful home, with help from his wife of course. My dad had passed away 2 years ago now but I have to say daddy thanks for all you have given us and I love and miss you more than you know. Love your very proud daughter. xoxo Happy Father's Day!! Patch …
