Looking Back on the Week, Looking forward to Halloween

In addition to getting ready to cover Greenfield’s Annual Rag Shag Parade, and put on our Masquerade Party fundraiser, we spent the week assisting producers, enjoying a great performance on “Valley Homegrown”, and lending our support to the first local U. S. Senate Candidates debate of the season.

With our help, the Northwestern District Attorney’s Office saw two of their projects come to fruition this week with an updated public service announcement (PSA) for tomorrow’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, and one for their Consumer Affairs Division, hit our homepage.  Staff members from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) also finished up their “Recovery Now!” series in both English and Spanish and would like to remind folks that the deadline to apply for FEMA recovery aid related to Tropical Storm Irene is this coming Wednesday, November 2nd.

Speaking of storms, the band HydroElectric took “Valley Homegrown” by one on Monday night.  The band describes their sound as “reminiscent of the early classic rock greats” as well as “a stoner/psych/metal project”.  You can check them out for yourself by watching their episode here.

You'll also soon be able to watch last night’s Athol Orange Television/GCTV co-production of the United States Democratic Senate Candidates Debate co-sponsored by the Greenfield and Athol Orange Democratic Town Committees.  As campaign season gets underway, we plan on bringing you more debates and information on the candidates so keep checking our homepage for more.

If you’ve been on our homepage regularly, you know that this is a big weekend for us.  We’ll begin broadcasting the Rag Shag parade live, from in front of Town Hall, at 5:30pm.  Amanda Jo from Bear Country 95.3 returns to co-host the event, this year with local author (and aspiring stand-up comic) Eve Brown-Waite.  Tune in to Cable Channel 15 for all the fun and afterwards  be sure to head back to where we'll be posting pictures of the parade’s costume contest winners  between 7:30pm and 8:30pm.  On Saturday night, we’d love for you to join us at The Greenfield Grille for our 3rd Annual Masquerade Party.  We’ll be dancing to the sounds of Zydeco Connection, enjoying all the outfits during our costume contest, and raffling off great prizes donated by local merchants.  Tickets are still available and can be purchased at the door ($15 each, cash or check only) beginning at 6:45pm tomorrow.

Have a happy Halloween everyone!
