Thanks to Walden’s Chimney Brush Fairy

“Not sure who, but some little fairy left me some chimney brushes on my deck. You’re so sweet! Thank you!”

Amazed by Charlotte neighbors’ generosity

“As others have posted, I am amazed at the many responses to my request posted on our Front Porch Forum. So many wonderful people responded to my request to use a pick-up truck — and many stating ‘no charge, just helping a neighbor’ or simply ‘please pay it forward.’ I love this spirit of helping and cooperating with one another. We are so happy that we moved to Vermont two years ago. Thank you all — and you know who you are.”
• Lisa, Charlotte FPF

Ferrisburgh community kindness

“Hello. My sister is coming for a visit from Illinois soon. She is handicapped with multiple sclerosis and cannot walk more than a few steps. We have lovely gardens we wish she could see close up. In Illinois, she uses her golf cart extensively and we wish to provide her one here for a week. If anyone has a golf cart we can use, we would be happy to rent it. Thanking you in advance for your help.”
• Mona, Ferrisburgh FPF

“Thanks to all of you who responded to our need for a golf cart for my handicapped sister. I truly never cease to be amazed at the community kindness I have experienced since joining Front Porch Forum. A new friend offered her golf cart to use.  Thanks again.”
