As today is the start of a new year, I would like to take one last look at some of the photos that are my favorites since I started contributing to the Orleans Hub in September. It is amazing that I have posted over 500 photos since Mike started writing for the Hub in September and it is very difficult to choose just a few as they are all my favorites.

It is said that “A picture is worth a thousand words” and I hope that in combination with the stories that Mike has posted you, the readers, have enjoyed viewing and reading about all the local athletes and their accomplishments these last four months.

Below you will see a representation of photos from each sport we have covered that I consider some of my very favorite photos so far. Here is hoping that in 2014 we can provide you with many more that are not only my favorites but yours at well.
