But Patchie left some memories and some photos... And a note saying that he wants to return next year!
When Patchie the Elf came to Woburn, he gave Local Patch Editor Danielle Masterson a note. It said something about how he was there to keep an eye on everyone, and he wanted his adventures to be published on Woburn Patch. Naturally, Woburn Patch complied. His travels were widely publicized on our Facebook page, but here—as a Christmas treat!—are all 24 Patchie the Elf photos from this holiday season. For the last 24 days, we've watched Patchie travel all over town, visiting different places, and always keeping an eye on the residents. Every night, he went back to the North Pole and told Santa Claus what he found. But last night, Patchie returned to the North Pole for the rest of the year! Before he left, he gave us another note: Dear …

Stop by any house this holiday season and you are likely to see an Elf on the Shelf. In fact, the city of Woburn has its own Elf on the Shelf—Patchie—who has been seen all over the city, keeping tabs on adults and children for Santa before the Christmas holiday. While Patchie's adventures are exclusively on Facebook, Santa did give us permission to post one photo here. And we're asking all of you to submit your own photos of your elves here, as well! We know these elves are crafty and creative, so let us know what you've come up with... And be sure to follow Patchie's adventures on Facebook at: www.facebook.com/WoburnPatch.

He's watching all of us, but where in Woburn is he? You'll need to visit us on Facebook to find out!
There is an elf at my house. I found him Friday, just sitting there, staring at me, from a shelf. I guess that makes him an elf on the shelf? He smiled at me and said he was here to keep an eye on Woburn's children and adults throughout the Christmas season. Then he handed me his "user manual"—The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition by Carol V. Aebersold and Chanda A. Bell. Turns out this elf is pretty famous! So I read up on my new friend, who I quickly named "Patchie," and discovered that he is visiting Woburn from the North Pole. He's here to report back to Santa on all our activities. Each day, he finds a new spot to watch us. Then at night, he goes back to the North Pole and tells Santa how we're doing. But while many elves …
