Why join Front Porch Forum?
FPF hosts online neighborhood/town forums where nearby neighbors connect and get involved in their local community.  In this era of busyness and individual isolation, where it’s hard to find volunteers for local committees and people increasingly don’t know their neighbors, Front Porch Forum helps people meet those around them and talk about issues.  And it’s free to residents in any of the Vermont communities below.

What if your town is not on the list?

  1. Hello! I am looking for a summer rental on Curtis Pond for one or two weeks. I had a cabin there but it had to be sold and I am longing to go “home” for a little while in the summer of 2011. Have canoe still on Pond; husband and I have been coming there since 1986 and love the Pond deeply and with all our hearts.
    We may be able to rent from a friend but as yet this is not clear. Please let us know if you hear of any possible rentals?

  2. I have many friends on the Pond, and I think and hope they will vouch for me as a good caretaker of homes. (I rented mine for 14 years, and always did all I could to care for the renters’ comfort and safety).
    Thank you all.
