“A VERY big thank you to Argyle Front Porch Forum (New York) for posting our plea for turtle help at the tractor pull!!!! The baby snapper is safe, healthy and has been released back in the wild. He was thrilled to be back in his (or her) home area. We have a short video of his release. Thank you so much to those who responded, we will email you in private as well. Thanks. Have a great night.”

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.”

“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.”
