How "The Fencepost" came to be...

Hey all!! Welcome to "The Fencepost"...let me tell you how this community came to be...grab a cup of coffee and an oatmeal cookie (but just one, they have gobs of fiber...)...and meet me by the fencepost...
(Insert dreamy music here...)

Before the days of internet, forums and chat parties; women use to meet at the fencepost between their properties to discuss what was going on in their lives, their families and their community. 

The fencepost was a meeting place of friends needing a connection with someone else.

We want to welcome you to our virtual fencepost. It’s a place where you can come and talk about your life, family and community. It’s a place where you can make friendships. A place to connect and be accepted.

This fencepost was put together by three moms, wives and friends in the hopes that you will stick around, share your stories and discover new friendships.

Because we want this to be a safe place, check out the rules below!

So what are you waiting for? Come join and get to know everyone, ask a question, start a discussion and participate in the age old tradition of friends connecting at the fencepost.

What a warm welcome!
Thanks for the advice on the only taking one oatmeal cookie...that could've been a situation that would've cleared the fencepost had I eaten more than one! ;-)
