Front Porch Forum

We did it! Thanks to our community we hit our 250 signees mark and exceeded it late last week.

Since we have demonstrated there is a demand for this service here the folks a Front Porch Forum have officially added Williamstown to their service. This forum will officially activate for use once we have 250 people signed up there.


So .. Your next step is to visit and create an account. 


Once 250 of us have done that the forum will activate and we can start using it.
