Even if you’re not a Facebook fan, here’s a reason to take a look: Many cities and towns have local, citizen-run pages where people post neighborhood information and engage with each other.
You can learn about and contribute to information on topics about civic and local events. You’ll also see people looking for healthcare providers, good coffee, Girl Scout cookies, movers, painters, plumbers, tailors, restaurants, lost personal items, and schools. And lost pets. It looks like lots of cats and dogs are slipping out of the house while nobody’s looking.
Here are pages for people in Wellesley, Newton and Waltham. We’ll add more, and send us your recommendations!
