WPSU’s “Our Town” series is set to visit Everett, PA!

Posted on February 09, 2015

WPSU and the “Our Town” television series is joining the Everett community this spring to kickoff “Our Town: Everett.” We are seeking stories from friends and neighbors within the Everett community. Our team is letting you decide what stories should be told about the people, places and happenings in your area! What makes Everett special to you? Whether you’re a longtime resident or recently joined the community there is a story waiting to be told.

Join us for the community meeting on Monday, February 23 at 7:00PM at the Everett Area High School auditorium to learn more about the project.

During the community meeting we’ll talk about story ideas and get everyone to commit to being a part of the project. We’ll also discuss how to visually tell your story by capturing video and photos from your hometown for the project.

We welcome you to part with WPSU and the Everett community to plan this program. No experience is required, just enthusiasm!
