Salisbury Holiday Tree Lighting Trivia Contest

Ken posted the following on Front Porch Forum in Salisbury, Leicester, Ripton and Goshen yesterday:

1) Which holiday tree is larger– Salisbury’s or the Burlington Church Street tree?

2) How about Salisbury’s or the Vatican’s?

Post your responses to FPF. Whoever gets the most right will win a box of delicious cookies and fame at this year’s event which will start at 5 pm THIS SATURDAY at Memorial Park (hayrides, bonfire, Santa, hot cocoa, lighting the magnificent tree) followed by more events at the Salisbury Library (More time with Santa, storybook dedication and reading, food, and refreshments).



Talking cats?

“Gray and white kitten was picked up by her owner 30 minutes after posting. Until cats start talking, Front Porch Forum is the next best thing.”

Budding farmer seeking stick shift lessons

Posted by Hillary this week on her Winooski Front Porch Forum

Hey friends!

I’m new to the neighborhood — I’ve loved FPF since I joined… I’m hoping you can help me!

I’m a young farmer and am applying for my absolute dream job. I have made it to the 2nd round of interviews and just found out that I must know how to drive manual. And I don’t… yet. Hopefully that’s where you come in!

Would you mind helping me learn how to drive manual? I’m a quick study and understand the way a manual transmission works. I’ve used many tractors and am familiar with shifting and clutches… I’ve just never had the chance to learn!

I’d be happy to rent a manual transmission car if you don’t feel comfortable driving yours. I can offer lunch at Pingala (my favorite place!) or some beers for an hour or so of your time.

Hoping to hear from you! Thanks!!

What’s on your FPF?
