Our Readers' Choice poll for best Waukee photographer has been extended until Sunday, April 29 at 9 a.m. The winner will be announced on Monday.

Just last week, four area businesses - Waukee Wellness and Chiropractic, JSParties, HappyFeet Soccer and Yana Glezina Photography all claimed their listings. So why haven't you? Owners or managers can sign in and …

Waukee Patch is all about you. That’s why we’ve been encouraging you to upload photos, submit your views on stories, suggest coverage and share a bit about yourselves, what you do and what’s going on around you. Everyday people, like Joel Goetsch, who oversees youth sports programming at the Waukee YMCA, are taking full advantage of the opportunity by blogging on Waukee Patch. He’ll blog about what’s going on with programming at the Y and share stories of how helping kids helps you -- and the whole community.
