Local businesses receive support on FPF

Turn to your neighbors on Front Porch Forum to find recommendations on finding local professionals!

“Thanks fellow neighbors for all of the wonderful recommendations that you shared with me regarding an Accountant for our small business. I’ve found each and every response so far so incredibly helpful! FPF is such a lovely resource and I’m glad to be a part of the community in this way.” • Ilana in Waterbury Center

“I was more than impressed that more than 12 (!!!) kind neighbors responded to my request for info about Limoge Garage Door. Everyone had good things to say, to which I add my own positive experience as a result. Thanks so much to everyone who responded, and to the FPF folks who make this kind of communication so easy, and help get the word out about ordinary people simply doing an excellent job.”  • Suzi in Burlington

“Just want to say thanks for all of the recommendations I received for a local forester! FPF is awesome!”  • Theresa in Waterbury

“Go West, Young Company: Front Porch Forum Expands Into New York State”

Front Porch Forum has made its first significant out-of-state expansion and is now serving parts of New York, where about 1,500 members have joined so far.

“Now the free, hyperlocal social network has 170,000 members around Vermont and is striking into new territory: upstate New York. In June, the company launched its first major expansion outside of the Green Mountain State, into New York’s Washington County, a rural stretch that borders Vermont in the Slate Valley; and Warren County, which contains Glens Falls. ”

Loneliness in Vermont

If you are ever feeling lonely in one of Vermont’s rural nooks or bustling towns, a post on FPF might just do the trick!

“If you are every feeling lonely, just post on FPF for crutches. You’ll get lots of emails and you can roam thru the valley visiting and picking them up. And a week later you get to visit again to return them. Thank you all for the offers.” • Ken F., Warren, Vt.
