Here’s a posting from a South Burlington FPF neighborhood forum from Deana that makes my day…
I just wanted to show my gratitude for the neighbors I have on [our street]. People on our street care about one another, watch out for each other, and help whenever you need it. I’ve walked out my door and my neighbor is chipping away at ice in my driveway for crying out loud!!
I’ve lived in southern Florida, San Diego, and now Vermont. Making a life on [our street] has been an experience of a lifetime. There’s nothing like it.
We are out of town right now and I feel very at ease as my neighbor, Susan, is taking care our dogs, the mail, and no doubt whatever weather inhabits our driveway. I love turning off of [the main road] and immediately begin to wave at anyone who is in their yard or walking on the street.
Thank you to everyone on [our street] for making our neighborhood feel like a real community. I am very proud to be part of it.
