(wvia) - Milton in Northumberland County will be the next town featured in WVIA's "Our Town" documentary series. It all begins on Thursday, Jan 17 at the Milton Borough Building located at 2 Filbert Street in Milton, as WVIA holds a volunteer planning meeting at 6 p.m. All residents of Milton are encouraged to attend.

The "day-in-the-life" one-hour video scrapbook will focus on the people, places and happenings of Milton, PA., as seen through the eyes of its residents.

At the volunteer planning meeting, residents from Milton 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. The volunteers will later videotape the footage around Milton with the help of WVIA to create the documentary. 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 lisamazzarella@wvia.org.

"Our Town: Milton" will debut on Tuesday, March 26 on WVIA-TV.

As northeastern Pennsylvania'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.

WVIA is proud to serve Northeastern Pennsylvania and the Central Susquehanna Valley. People change and lives improve when powerful ideas challenge us. WVIA Public Media is a regional catalyst, convener and educator, using media, partnerships, ideas and programs to advance the best attributes of an enlightened society.
