WVIA invites residents from the Hawley area to the “Our Town: Hawley” preproduction meeting, which will occur this Thursday, March 3 at 5 p.m. at the Cocoon near the Hawley Silk Mill.
“Our Town Hawley” is the next edition of WVIA’s "Our Town" documentary series. The one-hour video scrapbook will focus on the people, places and happenings of Hawley, Pennsylvania, as seen through the eyes of its residents. “Our Town Hawley” will premiere this June on WVIA TV.
At the pre-production meeting, residents from the Hawley area will discuss which landmarks, events and local stories the program should explore. WVIA will answer questions about the project during the meeting and ask the volunteer videographers and/or storytellers to narrow the list of subjects and events to videotape.  WVIA hopes to recruit 20 to 25 area residents with personal camcorders.
Anyone interested in being a videographer and/or storyteller for the documentary should contact WVIA Our Town producer, Lisa Mazzarella, at (570)602-1164 or by e-mailing lisamazzarella@wvia.org.
As northeastern Pennsylvania’s and the central Susquehanna valley’s public television station serving a very large geographic area, the "Our Town" project was initiated in an effort to involve the communities and their residents with WVIA. The "Our Town" documentary series is intended to treat viewers to the many personalities, perspectives, and possibilities that local towns have to offer.
