Backwards Week in Review

Because it's a short week, and we're involved in things happening this weekend, we want to take a few moments to talk about the end of the week first. 

Tomorrow is Veterans Day and Greenfield will be recognizing our servicemen and women with a parade through downtown and ceremonies at Veterans Mall.  Even though we're closed, one of our staff members will be on location tomorrow morning to film the parade and recognitions so that you can watch them on Cable Channel 15 next week or online as part of our Video on Demand Player.

The fact that we're closed will also not prevent our being used tomorrow and Saturday as a location for the Double Take Fringe Festival, as their folks perform two pieces during three showtimes at our studio.  If you haven't heard about this avant garde theatre feast click on over to the short preview video we did for it.  The actors and director for "All the King's Women" have been in here several times this week rehearsing and putting the finishing touches on their production.  

"Franklin County Matters" also spent some time this week putting finishing touches on their latest projects.  Producer Tom Roulston edited two shows highlighting local social service organizations.  Host Dave Roulston recently interviewed a group of folks from the ARC about the programs they have to help adults with mental retardation or other developmental disabilities.  Right after that, Dave sat down with Bob Sunderland, Executive Director of the YMCA in Greenfield, to talk about all the great community services they offer.  That episode can be viewed here and the other should be available early next week.

We've also been focusing on service to the community this week and some of our staff members took advantage of a quiet Wednesday afternoon to get interviews with local agencies who will be helping people this holiday season.  Over the coming weeks you can expect to find stories on our homepage about ways you can donate food and toys, help the Salvation Army, and even perhaps "adopt-a-family".

Finally, we'd like to mention Monday night's "Valley Homegrown".  The band this week was Shokazoba Afrofunk Ensemble and they were smokin'!  The crew was very excited to have such a great group of musicians on the show and you can check them out for yourself by watching this episode here.
