Foliage viewing suggestions… ask neighbors on FPF

“A huge thank you to everyone who emailed me about spots to view Montpelier foliage! We checked out several of the most common spots recommended already and got absolutely gorgeous pictures. I have several more on the list to check out this weekend. Front Porch Forum is awesome!”

Mother-in-law’s irreplaceable photos returned in Malletts Bay

“My mother-in-law set her camera down on the second bench over from the swing in the Bayside park in Malletts Bay around 11:00am Wednesday. She is here for the week and we would love to get that camera back for her! It’s full of family pictures that are not replaceable or printed out! If you have any information saw it or picked it up please let me know!”
• Colby, Colchester Front Porch Forum

“We got the lost camera back today! Thank you Derek for all of your help! She couldn’t be more thrilled to have those memories returned! Thank you thank you 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.”
