Our Town

Thank You Clearfield!

Posted by Whitney on 10/26 at 01:24 PM

The live broadcast premiere of “Our Town: Clearfield” last night was embraced by all of Clearfield and beyond! In addition to hearing from viewers all along the Susquehanna, we received calls from folks in Florida, Georgia, Alaska, & California whose hearts are still in Clearfield! Thank you to each and every person who called in last night. We tried to make sure to thank everyone because you make all of this possible for your community and that’s so important.

We could not have made this program without all of our fantastic storytellers and videographers—-the talent of your neighbors in Clearfield was unveiled last night. It was a privilege to work with everyone involved in the project.

We also had some major support from The Progress, The Clearfield County Historical Society and Museum, Clearfield Hospital, Clearfield Revitalization Corporation, Clearfield Chamber, and Clearfield Career and Technology Center. When we were approached to do the show, we were told that Clearfield has so much community involvement and a lot of people who would step up and support the show—-WOW, we were blown away by the amount of support for this project from day one! It is amazing to see how a community can come together to help support a project like this because you are all so proud of your hometown.

Clearfield is home to our transmitter and we were very excited to learn more about this great town. With our new friends at the Clearfield County Historical Society and Museum, we got a taste of the rich heritage, but there’s so much more. If you have not checked out the Kerr House, The Clearfield County Historical Society Museum, that was the location for our interviews and it is one of the most extensive historical society collections we’ve seen, so we encourage you to stop by sometime.

Thank you again to all of Clearfield for an amazing night!
