Touched by Montpelier neighbors

“Thank you everyone who replied to me the other day when I posted that I was in urgent need of an apartment for June 1st. I was overwhelmed by the number of responses I received, and touched at all the offers of support. I have found an apartment!

“Thank you Front Porch Forum, Montpelier, and Vermont in general for being so neighborly and supportive! This is what makes Vermont a great place to live :).”

Bears ransack Mad River Valley garage

“I didn’t know bears opened garages, but indeed they do. I haven’t been to the transfer station in quite some time so there’s lots of trash and recyclables in my garage. I woke up to my garage door half way up and trash everywhere… each white kitchen bag of trash was methodically opened and searched. (Recyclables weren’t touched.) The bags were carried into the woods so there’s a mess everywhere… Please be aware and secure your garages. My garage door was down but wasn’t locked.”

Middletown Spring neighbors take good fences

“FPF ‘Faster Than a Speeding Bullet’… My posting on free fencing had not even appeared in my own in-box when I got a call from someone who’s picking up the fencing and T posts tomorrow. Neighbor-to-neighbor… bringing us all closer together!”

Grateful for engaged neighbors in Winooski

Thank you to the folks who dutifully post our happenings, thoughts, advertisements and questions on the Winooski Front Porch Forum. Everything I have ever desired to sell has gone quickly and safely through advertising on the FPF. And, so it was again that my sofa and chair disappeared in record time.

It is time to donate to FPF as thanks, and I intend to make good on that promise. Expect my check this week. Thanks so much!
