#VT – Posted today on the East Montpelier FPF, where one-third of the town has joined in the five months since launching…
I read through the most recent issue of Front Porch Forum and could only feel gratitude for this community.
Thank you to the person who is offering chicks to people who lost theirs to the bears! Warms my heart to know we live in a community where this kind of thing happens.
Thank you to the people who so well articulated my mixed feelings about the elementary school facility project. I think that the public meeting tomorrow night should focus on some of the questions asked at the end of the letter on FPF not just the dollars and cents…
And thank you for all of the postings about dogs, bears, hummingbirds, town roads and more.
And welcome new members most of whom I do not know but feel that we at least have something in common – a good source of neighborly conversation and important information exchange.
UPDATE: And here’s another posting on the East Montpelier FPF…
I just want to say that I think FPF is fantastic. I have not caught on to Facebook (and have no urge to do so). This chatting between neighbors is wonderful.
The conversations that are currently taking place over the School Bond have been well written, informative, and respectful. Thanks.
