*Editor's note: The originally-scheduled kick-off meeting scheduled for June 18 at Bald Eagle Area High School has been canceled.
WPSU is coming to areas that serve the Bald Eagle Area School District to highlight all the great things about our communities. And to generate excitement about the program, the media outlet is holding a kick-off meeting 6:30 p.m. June 18 at the Bald Eagle Area High School auditorium.
The “Our Town” program will highlight the Bald Eagle Valley, which ranges from Lock Haven to Port Matilda, including most communities within the Bald Eagle Area School District. This will be WPSUs 101st edition of “Our Town.”
Produced by WPSU for more than 20 years, Community Engagement Manager Carolyn Donaldson said “Our Town” has a mission to “capture the spirit of local communities from the perspective of the residents” and “provides an opportunity for community volunteers to share their town's unique features” profiling organizations such as the Rotary Club, arts, schools, attractions, local folklore, places, history and people.
She added that it’s something generated, videotaped and narrated by community residents, while WPSU works to spotlight and document the uniqueness of the area and what it has to offer.
