Our Town

Volunteers Needed for Our Town Reynoldsville Production

Posted by Whitney on 03/25 at 03:00 AM

Community members from the Reynoldsville area are invited to attend a volunteer planning meeting to learn about the Our Town project. The meeting will be held at the Reynoldsville Bellamauro Social Hall at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 7. Anyone interested in the production is invited to attend. The hall is located at 1017 Route 950, Reynoldsville / Falls Creek Road.

At the meeting, local Reynoldsville residents will discuss which landmarks, events, and local stories the program should tell about their town. WPSU will answer questions about the project during the meeting and ask volunteers to brainstorm a list of subjects and events to videotape. The volunteers will later videotape the Reynoldsville footage with the help of WPSU-TV to create the documentary.

WPSU hopes to recruit 20 to 25 area residents with personal camcorders. WPSU-TV provides one-hour of blank videotape to each volunteer in the format of his or her choice. There are no restrictions as to age or experience and no cost to participate, just a willingness to be part of the project.

Anyone who is interested in being a videographer and/or storyteller for the program should contact WPSU producer, Whitney Chirdon, at 814-863-6634 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

The production date is set for Saturday, April 17. The program will be broadcast in June during the station’s on-air membership campaign.

As central Pennsylvania’s public television station serving a very large geographic area, the “Our Town” project was developed in an effort to involve the communities and their residents with WPSU-TV. The “Our Town” series is intended to treat viewers to the many personalities, perspectives, and possibilities that local towns have to offer.

“Our Town: Reynoldsville” will be the 54th production in the series. Previous programs have showcased many towns, including Altoona, Everett, Martinsburg, Northern Cambria, Jersey Shore, Bedford, Bellefonte, Bradford, Johnstown, Huntingdon, Indiana, DuBois, St. Marys, Lewistown, Somerset, Warren, Windber, and Olean, NY.
