Need complete fly fishing set-up? Try neighbors

“Owing to great success, Front Porch Forum has become my “look here first” place for finding props for various productions I’m involved with. Currently, I am producing a feature film for a Burlington area filmmaker. We are seeking a complete set of fly fishing gear (rod & reel, waders, etc.) and possibly the expertise of the owner to consult on the film. Production of this scene will happen in late May or June, likely to be a one-day shoot. We are providing credit in the film. Thanks!”

Grandmom seeking pediatric nebulizer in Middlebury

“After a hasty trip to the ER our visiting grandson has been diagnosed with croup – very scary! MD recommends having a pediatric nebulizer on hand in the event he has another ‘event.’ Hopefully it will not be needed and the “tribe” leaves on Friday. I don’t believe this is akin to borrowing someone’s toothbrush and am hoping there is one available and not in use.”

“How GREAT is Front Porch Forum and how GREAT is this community!!  So many generous responses to my request to borrow a nebulizer… I hope they were not all the result of a similar baby crisis and if so that the crisis is long past. My resourceful daughter rented a nebulizer from the Medicine Chest… something I never even knew was possible. How many things a grandmom does not know. Mom, Dad and Babe are now sleeping soundly as I type after much to much excitement last night. Thank You ALL!”
