The Select Board has signed E Montpelier up for Front Porch Forum, a Vermont based community bulletin board for posting events, requests, items for sale, neighborhood news, etc. Check it out here: http://frontporchforum.com/ . It's brand new for our town. The Signpost will continue to provide this page for town notices and community events as well, since the 2 websites are quite different. Make sure to use your East Montpelier town address when signing up for Front Porch Forum, rather than your mailing address town.
