#BTV #VT – Hi neighbors. Many of you may have noticed that Dave the mailman for our neighborhood has been absent. I found out that he had a knee injury, and probably will be retiring.
This simple post by Nancy on a Front Porch Forum for a South Burlington neighborhood has led to 20 more postings in support of doing something to recognize their long-serving postal carrier. And, per usual, each posting leads to more direct conversation among neighbors off FPF. This particular FPF covers a 150-household neighborhood and has 195 members… and they’ve been discussing this issue for about a week now. Lucky Dave… I’m sure he’ll get some lovely and well-deserved expressions of gratitude in the coming days.
