From Sue in Moretown #VT today…
Thank you Front Porch Forum for connecting me with a Forum member who cleaned my gutters and swept my garage roof. So nice to meet a neighbor in the process.
That’s FPF in a nutshell. Get something checked off your to-do list… and meet a neighbor in the process. Our aim is to help neighbors connect and build community. It happens one small exchange at a time… online and face-to-face.
As a friend said recently… “So much of the Internet feels like a fire hose of information, but FPF is like slow-drip irrigation.” I’m not sure how I feel about being compared to a soaker hose… guess we’ve been called worse. 😉
