On Thursday, September 19that 6:30 p.m. VIA will hold a second community/volunteer meeting at the Forty Fort Borough Building. 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 Forty Fort.” VIA hopes to recruit 20 to 25 area residents with personal camcorders.
