Welcome toKane & Mt Jewett, PA
The production team returned from the Kane Depot on Saturday with more than 30 fantastic stories for the “Our Town: Kane & Mt. Jewett” show on Saturday. It was such a beautiful day and everyone welcomed the team into the area and shared their stories about history, arts, industry, recreation, and so much more! It was so great to keep hearing over and over a deep appreciation for the gorgeous landscape around McKean County and for the great way in which everyone gives back to help each other in their community. It’s so nice to see communities that care and that’s what the “Our Town” series is all about!
The corps of “Our Town: Kane & Mt. Jewett” volunteer storytellers are eager to share stories about the Kane & Mt. Jewett area with WPSU this Saturday as they prepare to sit down for interviews with WPSU producers for the latest installment in the “Our Town” series. In addition to their sharing stories and memories about the area this Saturday at the historic Kane Depot, volunteers have been gathering video footage and still photos to help tell their stories. If you see your friends and neighbors out and about town with a camera — don’t be shy! They’re helping to shine the spotlight on Kane and Mt. Jewett for the public television special, scheduled to broadcast on Thursday, September 8 at 8 p.m. on WPSU-TV.
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!
