Last Updated by
Pittston, PA – WVIA invites all Clarks Summit, Clarks Green, Dalton, Newton, Ransom, South Abington and Waverly residents to a community planning meeting for the “Our Town The Abingtons” television program Tuesday, November 24 at 6:00 p.m. at The Abington Community Library located at 1200 W. Grove Street in Clarks Summit.
At this meeting, residents will discuss which landmarks, events and local stories the program should explore. WVIA will answer questions about the project during the meeting and ask the volunteer videographers and/or storytellers to narrow the list of subjects and events to videotape. WVIA hopes to recruit 20 to 25 area residents with personal camcorders
Anyone interested in being a videographer and/or storyteller for the program should contact WVIA “Our Town” producer, Lisa Mazzarella, at 570-602-1164 or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Our Town The Abingtons” will debut in the Spring of 2016 on WVIA-TV.
As northeastern Pennsylvania’s and the Central Susquehanna Valley’s public television station serving a very large geographic area, the "Our Town" project was initiated in an effort to involve the communities and their residents with WVIA. The "Our Town" documentary series is intended to treat viewers to the many personalities, perspectives, and possibilities that local towns have to offer.
