How did we find out what was happening before the internet? Now a wide variety of local Facebook groups for towns all over Bucks County exist to help you stay connected to your community. From town happenings to local business goings on and special interest groups, you can stay connected, get recommendations, and find new friends who share your interests. This list of local groups on Facebook will help you get started.
Some of the groups are private, which means you have to ask to join them. Some prefer that you live or work in the town the group was created for, and some have specific rules you have to follow. Read the rules, ask to join, and then get connected.
