Vergennes stolen purse – happy ending

1130a861f02b00b460a0f65c168b47ce“Saturday evening, I inadvertently left my purse and tote on the sidewalk in the heart of Vergennes at the streetlight. Multi-tasking, I put my purse and tote down outside the Men’s Corner to load something up, then drove away. Upon our return 20 minutes later, my wicker purse (with wide black ribbon) and burlap tote (with white polka dots) were gone. Vergennes Police have been notified. My wallet, checkbook, cash, iPhone and other basics are gone; hopefully, not forever. If anybody has any information leading to their findings, please contact me. Offering $200 reward. Thank you.”

“Three cheers to Front Porch Forum – Sunday evening, I reported the unfortunate event of my stolen purse and tote bag on Main Street. Monday morning, I began the arduous task of obtaining a new drivers license, replacing my cell phone, and ridding myself of the anger I was harboring. I was particularly sad about the loss of my new purse from Malabar. The Little City with the Big Heart rallied and I extend my thanks to those who provided empathy and support since my last post. And good news – the thieves weren’t interested in my purse! Along with the tote, it was tossed into bushes on a nearby street and found the next day, unharmed. My thanks to FPF and concerned citizens, and the dear young couple who found it and returned it to me. Happy screams, hugs, and great joy followed. The longest day of the year had a very happy ending!
