Our Town: Smethport Project Underway!

Posted by Whitney on 07/17 at 02:10 PM

If you see your neighbors around town with video cameras, they may be working to document the people, places and happenings of your hometown for “Our Town: Smethport.” Members of the Smethport community have volunteered to tell stories about the McKean County Historical Society, the Bucktails, the McKean County Fair, some famous products that have been manufactured in Smethport, the library, and so much more!

WPSU had an amazing response from the Smethport area from folks who wanted to participate in the “Our Town: Smethport” project! It’s great to see how much pride everyone has in their community and how many great stories there are to share. Volunteers will be collecting their video footage and photos for the next few weeks and then they’ll sit down and talk about their stories with WPSU producers on Saturday, August 2 for their scheduled on-camera interviews. We can’t wait to see what footage everyone brings back to help spotlight the stories they’ve selected!

WPSU will work to edit “Our Town: Smethport” and have it ready to broadcast this coming October. Mark your calendars…the broadcast premiere is Thursday, October 16 at 8PM on WPSU-TV and online at wpsu.org/live.
