Each neighborhood and town is unique… we can testify to that fact through our hosting of 170 different FPFs across Vermont.
While each place is different, they all get more value out of Front Porch Forum as more neighbors sign up.
Recruiting new FPF members on Town Meeting Day has proven a great way to boost your own FPF. Handing out flyers, passing around a sign-up sheet, speaking from the floor about your FPF during the meeting itself… we’ve heard of lots of successful approaches. In fact, Jeff just sent this note in today…
I would say FPF in Richmond has been a smashing success. My Town Energy Committee will have a table set up on Town Meeting Day. While FPF is a little off topic for our group, I see no reason why we can’t have flyers on our table… FPF has been a wonderful addition to our town and to the state.
if you’d like materials or tips for promoting your Front Porch Forum on Town Meeting Day.
