Pittston, PA – Luzerne, Pennsylvania will be the next town featured in WVIA’s “Our Town” documentary series and the first from Luzerne County. “Our Town Luzerne” will be a “day-in-the-life” one-hour video scrapbook focusing on the people, places and happenings of Luzerne, PA., as seen through the eyes of its residents.
All Luzerne residents are encouraged to attend the first “Our Town Luzerne” community/volunteer meeting, Wednesday, Feb. 26 at 6:30 p.m. at the Volunteer Fire Department located at 66 Tener Street in Luzerne. Residents of Luzerne will discuss which landmarks, events and local stories the program should tell about their town. WVIA will answer questions about the project during the meeting and ask volunteers to brainstorm a list of subjects and events to videotape.
Then on Thursday, March 6 at 6:30 p.m. WVIA will hold a second community/volunteer meeting at the Volunteer Fire Department. During this meeting volunteers will participate in a whiteboard session to determine the stories to be told in the documentary and which stories each volunteer will videotape to create “Our Town Luzerne.” WVIA hopes to recruit 20 to 25 area residents with personal camcorders.
“Our Town Luzerne” will debut in May 2014 on WVIA-TV.
