Thank you to the several volunteers wrote about their experiences working on Our Town: Hollidaysburg. Dick Knupp our editor is working hard on all of the features. I will post a photo of him hard at work in a couple of days. It was so great having so many people come out and help with the show. It was a perfect day.

On Saturday, April 18th Hollidaysburg came to life with lots of volunteer producers and videographers as they created the elements that will be assembled into Our Town: Hollidaysburg, the public television program for WPSU. Everyone was wonderful to work with. I particularly want to thank Sarah Piper from the Community Partnership for helping getting things organized, Adam Cruse of Smart Media for all of the video that he shot for the show, and John Seely for feeding the volunteers and TV crew.

Twenty-eight volunteers attended the Our Town: Hollidaysburg planning meeting on Monday night. Volunteers came to find out more about Our Town: Hollidaysburg, a special public television program produced by and about the town of Hollidaysburg. The volunteers suggested several topics for the program, to be produced this Saturday, the April 18th. There was a lot of enthusiasm about their town.
