Need a financial advisor? Ask neighbors on FPF

Martha shared the following on her East Montpelier Front Porch Forum today…

Last week I posted requesting recommendations for a financial adviser to help me with retirement planning. Over 25 wonderful neighbors responded. Thank you all. Several people asked me to send them the names I received, so I thought I would open it up to FPF. If you would like to see the list of recommended financial advisers, email me and I’ll pass it on.

 

 

 

 

 


Business owner offers $5,000 reward on FPF for info about fire

The Stowe Reporter used the Morrisville Front Porch Forum recently to learn…

A Morristown man is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for a fire that destroyed his business last year.  But state fire investigators say the blaze wasn’t suspicious and there is no active investigation.

Most traditional media outlets in Vermont use their local FPFs for leads to stories that they investigate and report on.  We’re glad to play this role… and others.  Further, we appreciate when proper attribution is included in the piece, e.g….

He posted a notice on Front Porch Forum last week, offering a $5,000 reward in hope that someone would contact state police with information.

Stowe and the surround communities are fortunate to have the Reporter and the Record digging into local stories.

 


Be A Good Neighbor – The Front Porch Forum Story

Lang McLaughry Real Estate, a leading real estate company in Vermont, focused on Front Porch Forum recently on their website.  We’ve heard from Realtors across the state that they love to inform their clients about FPF… a “modern welcome wagon.”





“Charlotte neighbors and FPF – thank you!”

Jill in Charlotte posted this yesterday on her FPF…

Recently, I posted on Front Porch Forum about accommodation for my sister and her family over the holidays. I received such wonderful responses, a range of great possibilities! She did end up going with one of them.

And, just today, I picked up my car from Chris at Charlotte Collision. I called him because I remembered at least one FPF post singing his praises. I’d like to add my voice:  Chris looked at the damage to my car, gave me an estimate and an appt, and today it was ready for pick up. It looks great and Chris was very reasonable, commonsensical, easy, and lots of fun to do business with.

Charlotte neighbors and FPF — thank you!
