Neighbors doing it for Themselves

Posted on Monday, February 5, 2007 by No comments yet

Eight Burlington residents showed up on a chilly day late last week to distribute Front Porch Forum flyers door-to-door throughout the Old North End and hill section north of Pearl St. in Burlington, Vermont.  A huge thanks to Rob, Dani, Craig, Erica, Devin, Melissa and Deb.  Most are AmeriCorps volunteers.  Deb lives in the area we covered and is a Realtor.

About 100 households in that area have subscribed in the few days since the flyering.  If past experience is any indicator, we can expect this outreach effort to continue to bear fruit for weeks and even months.  And thanks too to Vantage Press for cutting a deal on the flyers.
