WPSU Prepares for Our Town: Kane & Mt Jewett

Posted by Whitney on 06/24 at 03:22 PM

The 62nd episode of the Our Town series will feature the McKean county area known as “The Big Level” and the “Black Cherry Capital of the World.” Members of the community are encouraged to share stories about the area in “Our Town: Kane & Mt: Jewett.” No experience is required—-just enthusiasm! WPSU producers will hold a public meeting about the project on Wednesday, July 13 at 7 p.m. in the Kane Area Middle School auditorium. 

At the meeting, members of the community will work with WPSU to decide what stories to feature in the public television program, which will debut on WPSU-TV in September. Kane & Mt. Jewett are rich in history and industry, surrounded by the beautiful Allegheny National Forest, have four seasons of recreation, and a strong sense of community…we should be able to find plenty of stories for this show!

After the meeting, we’ll send those who’ve decided to participate in the project out and about the area to collect video or still photos to help tell the Kane & Mt. Jewett story. Don’t worry—-we’ll help!

Want to know more? Join us for the meeting on Wednesday, July 13 at 7 p.m. at Kane Area Middle School. You can also call producers Whitney Chirdon at 814-863-6634 or Jessica Peters at 814-863-6224.

We look forward to hearing all about Kane & Mt. Jewett!

Mt. Jewett

I am very interested in the Mt. Jewett/Kane project living between both has given me alot of history. I have pictures of the Glass Plant with My Great Granfather at age 25 working with the railroad. I do not know what all you can use. I don’t have a video camera or I would take pictures.

I am disabled now. But I would love to share some knowledge of the 60’s to 2011. I do geneology More family than any thing.

I was on wpsu when you did the alphabet books. I baked Whoopie Pies for letter C/ Cookies
