Sullivan County to be Focus of WVIA’s "Our Town” Series – Volunteer Videographers/Storytellers Needed

Last Updated by WVIA Admin on

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

All Sullivan County residents are encouraged to attend the first “Our Town Sullivan County” community/volunteer meeting, Thursday, March 15 at 6:30 p.m. at D & D Brew Works, Laporte located at 741 US Hwy 220 in Muncy Valley, 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, March 22 at 6:30 p.m. WVIA will hold a second community/volunteer meeting at D & D Brew Works, Laporte. 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 Sullivan County.” 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 Sullivan County” will debut on June 11, 2018 on WVIA-TV.

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