Nanticoke, Pennsylvania Residents Encouraged to Attend Community Planning Meeting for WVIA-TV’s ‘Our Town: Nanticoke’ Program – Volunteers Videographers/Storytellers Needed 

 

PITTSTON, Pa. –Nanticoke in Luzerne County will be featured in WVIA's "Our Town" series. "Our Town Nanticoke" will be a "day-in-the-life" one-hour video scrapbook focusing on the people, places and happenings of Nanticoke, Pennsylvania, as seen through the eyes of its residents.

All Nanticoke residents are encouraged to attend the first "Our Town Nanticoke" community/volunteer meeting, Thursday, September 13 2018 at 6:30 p.m. at Nanticoke City Hall, which is located at 15 East Ridge Street Nanticoke, PA. Residents will discuss which landmarks, events and local stories the program should tell about their town. WVIA will answer questions about the project during the meeting and ask volunteers to brainstorm a list of subjects and events to videotape.

Then on Thursday, September 20, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. WVIA will hold a second community/volunteer meeting at the Nanticoke City Hall. During this meeting volunteers will participate in a whiteboard session to determine the stories to be told in the program and which stories each volunteer will videotape to create "Our Town Nanticoke." 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 lisamazzarella@wvia.org.

 

“Our Town Nanticoke” will debut on December 3, 2018 at 8 p.m. on WVIA-TV.

The "Our Town" documentary series is intended to treat viewers to the many personalities, perspectives, and possibilities that local towns have to offer.
