Our Town

Sheffield and the Valley ready to go into production

Posted by Charlie G on 07/22 at 03:52 PM

Last Thursday night over thirty people came together to decide what stories should be told about the Sheffield area on “Our Town: Sheffield and the Valley.” There was lots of enthusiasm from everyone.
On July 25th the crew from WPSU will be in town to record interviews with the volunteer story tellers who have recorded videos about the area. After we do the interviews we will take the volunteer videos and their comments and edit them together into segments. We will edit through most of August and then preview the show for the volunteers. After we make any corrections needed and will broadcast the program on Thursday, September 10th at 8pm. Viewers will be able to see the program on WPSU-TV and on the internet at wpsu.org. If you know people who live out of the area, let them know they can watch it on their computer at the same time people in Pennsylvania can see it.
There are more pictures of town and the planning meeting in the photo gallery of the website. Here is a list of story ideas for the show.

1. The Churches & Cemeteries
2. Ruth Smith Center
3. Volunteer Fire Departments (Cherry Grove, Sheffield & Clarendon)
4. The Depot
