Our Town Berwick
Premiered December 15th, 2010 on WVIA-TV
It’s a small town in Columbia County, with some big accomplishments. Gridiron greats—and a nationwide potato chip company rooted in hometown values; traditions of all kinds and cultures celebrated with gusto and passion; and a generous sense of community always willing to give of themselves to help others in need. It’s a place where history, industry, and hometown pride are as solid as a Stuart Tank.
Residents from Berwick, Pennsylvania volunteered their time to become videographers and storytellers for “Our Town: Berwick”. The residents narrowed down which landmarks, events and local stories the documentary would explore. Each subject was assigned to a volunteer to videotape and participants were then interviewed about why they chose to become involved.
Get to know the people of Berwick, and see through their eyes what makes this small town by the Susquehanna River a special place to call “home.”
