Don’t miss this Vermont-original community-building opportunity!
Did you know that a Vermont service is winning national accolades for its community building innovations? Front Porch Forum (FPF) was created in 2006 in Burlington and now more than 21,000 households subscribe across 50 Vermont towns. Now, thanks to the e-Vermont initiative, FPF’s reach is greatly expanded to more parts of the state.
If you live in one of the communities participating in FPF (see list below) you can SIGN UP for free and join in the conversations that are already happening in your community. Also, please let friends & family in these Vermont towns know that Front Porch Forum is available, and they should sign up! Only with more participation, will these towns realize the full community-building benefits of FPF. To sign up go to: http://frontporchforum.com.
Why join Front Porch Forum?
FPF hosts online neighborhood/town forums where nearby neighbors connect… and get involved in their local community. In this era of busyness and individual isolation, where it’s hard to find volunteers for local committees and people increasingly don’t know their neighbors, Front Porch Forum helps people meet those around them and talk about issues. And… it’s free to residents in any of these Vermont communities:
Brighton / Village of Island Pond
Canaan / Village of Beecher Falls
Essex Junction Village
Isle La Motte
What if your town is not on the list?
Communities in Vermont can bring Front Porch Forum to their town as one of a suite of services offered through the e-Vermont program. If you are interested, apply to e-Vermont by Nov. 17, 2010 at http://e4vt.org and help your community stay strong by taking it on line!
