Nanticoke residents urged to participate in ‘Our Town’ discussions


The City of Nanticoke will be featured in WVIA’s “Our Town” series. “Our Town Nanticoke” will be a “day-in-the-life” one-hour video scrapbook focusing on the people, places and happenings of Nanticoke, as seen through the eyes of its residents.

All Nanticoke residents are encouraged to attend the first “Our Town Nanticoke” community/volunteer meeting at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 13 at Nanticoke City Hall, 15 E. Ridge St. Residents will discuss which landmarks, events and local stories the program should tell about their town.

WVIA representatives will answer questions about the project during the meeting and ask volunteers to brainstorm a list of subjects and events to videotape.

WVIA will hold a second community/volunteer meeting at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 20 the Nanticoke City Hall. During this meeting, volunteers will participate in a whiteboard session to determine the stories to be told in the program and which stories each volunteer will videotape to create “Our Town Nanticoke.” WVIA hopes to recruit 20 to 25 area residents with personal camcorders.

Anyone interested in being a videographer and/or storyteller for the program should contact WVIA “Our Town” producer, Lisa Mazzarella, at 570-602-1164 or by e-mailing [email protected]

“Our Town Nanticoke” will debut at 8 p.m. Dec. 3, on WVIA-TV.
