Our Town

Bellwood Next Stop For Our Town Series!

Posted by Whitney on 04/26 at 04:49 PM

Jessica and I visited Bellwood today as the flowers were blooming and the green grass just started springing up. We snapped some cute pictures and met some great folks. We’re excited to get started on the 61st episode of the “Our Town” series. We’ll be holding the community meeting on Wednesday, May 11th at 6:30 p.m. at the Bellwood-Antis Public Library. We hope to see you there!

We’re looking for members of the Bellwood community to share stories from the area. Join us for the meeting on May 11th to help plan the project. Together we will feature the spirit of the Bellwood area. We’re looking for the stories that make your town special, what makes it your hometown. Local folklore, arts, schools, attractions…make great stories and give viewers a sense of your area.  No experience is necessary—-just enthusiasm!

At the meeting, we will talk about what stories you feel are important to highlight in the program. We’ll provide the blank tape and some tips to get you started. It’s up to you to collect the visuals you need to tell the story. We’ll return in a week or so to talk about what you discovered in a casual interview. Your interview will help tie the story together and add the personality that makes this show special. Don’t worry — through the power of video editing we’ll eliminate the “ums” and “ahs.” Next, we’ll take your videotape and interview back to the TV station and edit it all together. We’ll then broadcast the program in August on WPSU.

To learn more, join us at the community meeting on Wednesday, May 11 at the Bellwood-Antis Public Library or email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
