Front Porch Forum is now in WELLS.
Wells residents can now sign up for our new local Front Porch Forum (FPF)! As a modern-day cross between community bulletin boards and virtual town greens, FPF provides an easy way for our residents to connect with neighbors. It’s free. It’s local. And it’s friendly.
Visit FrontPorchForum.com to learn more.
More than 60,000 households across Vermont already use their neighborhood FPFs to find roofers, give away strollers, rally volunteers for pie suppers, trade equipment, and describe wildlife sightings. Common topics also include school budgets, town office candidates, local events or starting a food shelf.
Because the service is moderated and real names accompany postings, the discussions remain civil, engaging, and relevant. In times of need, such as during and following natural disasters, a Front Porch Forum becomes even more powerful.
FPF and the Vermont Council on Rural Development’s Vermont Digital Economy Project are teaming up to bring this service to all Vermonters for free. Each new forum starts in “registration” mode and becomes fully functional once 100 residents sign up. This threshold will help it kick-off with a variety of interesting topics.
FPF is not run by the Town, but we look forward to being active participants.
