Our Town

Curwensville to be Focus of “Our Town” Production—Volunteers Needed

Posted by Whitney on 10/08 at 09:19 AM

WPSU has announced that Curwensville will be featured in the station’s “Our Town” series. The “day-in-the-life” one-hour video scrapbook will focus on the people, places and happenings of Curwensville, Pa., as seen through the eyes of its residents.

Community members from the Curwensville area are invited to attend a volunteer planning meeting to learn about the “Our Town” project. The meeting will be held at the Curwensville Community Center at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 13th and anyone interested in the production is invited to attend.

At the meeting, local Curwensville 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 Curwensville 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 by e-mailing .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

The production date is set for Saturday, Oct 24. The program will be broadcast in December during the station’s winter 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: Curwensville” will be the 52nd 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.
