Chesapeake Bay Retriever puppies find homes in Waterbury

“A week ago I posted on behalf of a friend who was fostering three adorable Chesapeake Bay Retriever mix puppies that needed homes. After my post on Front Porch Forum she said the response from the Waterbury Community was overwhelming. All three of those puppies are now in happy new homes and two of them now reside in the Waterbury area. A happy ending for all!”

Karma: Lost bankroll returned to generous owner in South Hero

“On Sunday morning some money was dropped on my front lawn. I have a table with Yard Sale Items with a sign that reads FREE OR DONATE TO THE FRANKLIN HUMANE SOCIETY. There was some money left in the donation tub. I would guess that the money I found fell out of your pocket when/if you made a donation. Thank you, by the way. The found money was an amount that I could not afford to lose. If you are this person or know who it may be please call me or stop by. By the way, NO SCAMMERS!. I have no tolerance for thieves and if you cannot satisfy me that you are indeed the person who lost this money I will report your license plate number to the Sheriff’s Dept. Hope to hear from you. If this money is not claimed it will, in fact, be a donation the Franklin Count Humane Society. Thank you.”
• Thom, South Hero FPF

“I posted a found money notice yesterday on FPF. Update: the individual and the money have been happily re-united. The end-all to this situation is that it happened so quickly and that it happened at all only because of Front Porch Forum. Thanks.”

• Paul, Vergennes FPF

“Our thanks to both Front Porch Forum, which proved its worth once again, and Martin and Scott who rescued us this morning and got all the furniture back in place.”

Neighborly matchmaking in Waterbury

“To Dan – We met this evening at the Village Market – we talked about the Long Trail, your unruly little piglets, and bacon. (You also mentioned that you live near Camels Hump.) Hoping our paths cross again… maybe Front Porch Forum can help.”
