#VT – Some people assert that residents of condominiums and apartments are less inclined to be neighborly or care about community. I disagree. While these areas may have fewer postings on Front Porch Forum than some single-family-home dominated neighborhoods, many of their residents still value community. Here’s a note from Robynn today, writing from a condo development in Chittenden County to FPF…
…a commendation to you and your staff! What you produce is top quality, first class. I LOVE FPF! It’s how I found my eye doctor, was able to donate notebooks to a worthy cause, way to volunteer in the community, and even though my recent bike posting did not net a sale, it felt good to try and sell it before it heads to Earl’s bike swap on Thursday. I feel more connected to my community because of our FPF. Thank you for what you do for our community and all others in VT!!
