Welcome to Emporium
Its finally here! The live broadcast premiere of Our Town: Emporium is upon us! Tune in to WPSU-TV or online at wpsu.org to watch the show live! If you live in the Cameron County area and do not receive WPSU on your TV, several area restaurants have committed to carrying the live broadcast on their TVs. They are:
What a fantastic show “Our Town: Emporium” is shaping up to be! Last night about 20 community volunteers came to the fire department to meet and exchange ideas on what stories should be included in the show. Volunteers had a brief training on how to shape their stories, then signed up for times for their on-camera interviews on Saturday, April 28th at the Cameron County Chamber of Commerce and Artisan Center.
We’re less than a week away from the community volunteer meeting for “Our Town: Emporium”! By now, you’ve hopefully heard about the project—we’ve had a ton of great coverage so far! Several pieces have appeared in the local papers, we’ve had volunteers distributing flyers, and if you notice those small glossy cards on counters at local businesses, those are advertising the meeting as well! There was even a screening of “Our Town: Emporium” (2001) sponsored by the Cameron County Chamber (thanks, Tina!)!
On Friday, March 9th, Sam Komlenic and I made the beautiful drive from State College, through the Quehanna Wilds Area, to Emporium to meet with about 10 folks at the Emporium Borough Building to kickoff the 66th installation in the Our Town series! This is the second time we have visited Emporium for the Our Town series. The first was in 2001—and we thought that it was time for an update! We’re looking for community volunteers to help tell the story of this town at the heart of the PA Wilds!
