The people of Richmond, VT, rallied to pull together through a very tough bridge closure right in the heart of Richmond Village. Good news… the bridge is now fixed up and open. Amy Klinger, one of the many people who jumped in over these past many months just posted the following on Front Porch Forum…
Hello, friends and neighbors. There are (at least) three organizations that have played critical roles in helping Richmond and its neighbors get through the last challenging 10 months: Richmond Area Business Association (RABA), Local Motion (the ferry service provider), and Front Porch Forum. All three organizations survive because of community support and I want to encourage folks to consider getting to know them a little better and supporting them in any way you can…
Front Porch Forum: If you are reading this message, you know what a valuable resource we have in Front Porch Forum. Here we can find a good firewood resource, keep apprised of criminal activity in our neighborhoods, discuss wildlife sightings, and vent frustrations. Over the last several months, we were also kept apprised of business-related news, bridge updates, and special events. Not bad for a free service. While I don’t know the stats for Huntington or Bolton, I’ve heard that 40% of Richmond residents are currently FPF subscribers–a good number, but it could be even better. If you know folks who are not currently subscribers, may I suggest you start saying things like, “You know what I read on Front Porch Forum?”or “You should post a message to Front Porch Forum about that.”or go the direct route, “Hey, you should sign up for the Front Porch Forum.”Here’s the website: http://frontporchforum.com
Thanks to these organizations and thanks to all of you who keep our communities vibrant and strong.
