Hi, just stopping in to chat about a great place we in our community can connect live and talk real time with people in your community on an internet community forum. It has been available to the public for 5 years now and is up to 22,000 local residents.
It is called Escondido Friends. Just pop onto Facebook, look for the group “Escondido Friends,” and you will be able to meet your neighbors.
When you use this group, you make new friends, get to know your area, learn about history, find common interests with people you would have never met. Find the best dentist, or the best shoe repair, find encouragement from others, get a different perspective, see some stunning sunsets, save photos and use them for blackmail later. Laugh and enjoy the simple things like how many spiders we really have in Escondido.
You can make a coffee date with someone new. Find your Iguana or two. Find your pup, cat, grandma, kids (yes we lose everyone in this town). You can find the best Mexican bakery. And the best tacos. (or menudo!) I never even knew what that was until this page.
So thank you to our Mexican culture for good food. You can find out about any house or building on this page. Just post a photo and someone here knows the history of it. You can request a get together and people will come, just to meet others in our community.
We have people of all ages and ranges of cultures. New to Escondido and old. The power of a community is pretty wonderful, as you will get to know. It is where you really feel like you become part of your community. If you have not joined yet, just head on to Facebook. Look for me, Patti Thompson. Send me a message or call me for help. 760-580-4973. I will help you get connected to your community. This is for Businesses too! We have a merchant Monday everyone in the local area may post on the one day for free! So join! You mean everything to this community.
Patti Thompson is the founder of Escondido Friends, which has about 22,000 members.
