We lost a good one on Sunday. Our volunteer extraordinaire, Bruce Perry, passed away. Bruce, who put in many hundreds of hours of volunteer time both with LPCTV and for Black River High School, for whom he recorded all 3 seasons of boys and girls sports. Bruce was a dedicated and generous man, and he will be missed; but we know that his legacy is ingrained here at LPCTV. So long, Bipper. And thank you.

We recently completed a series of acoustic and lighting improvements in the TV / performance studio.
This includes new energy-efficient studio lighting, re-insulating the walls, installation of rubber flooring, and an infinity, or "cyclorama" green screen wall.
This $30K project was financed through a combination of grants from the Vermont Arts Council and Okemo Community Challenge, and a private donation.
Come help us put the new & improved studio to use!
Check out some of the fun "Greeting Cards" we made with guests at the Kentucky Derby Gala fundraiser.
Last weekend's Kentucky Derby Gala fundraiser was quite a success. More than 100 people attended, participating in charity betting, watching the Derby, and enjoying the great Spring weather, food, and company at Willie Dunn's Grille. Thank you to Willie Dunn's and Okemo Valley Golf Club for helping to make this event so successful. Thank you also to our "Circle of Roses" sponsors: Okemo Mountain Resort, Vermont Properties & Development, The Book Nook, George Tucker, Inc., Jim & Anita Alic, Ludlow Farmers' Market, and Wine & Cheese Dept / Stemwinder. The 4th Annual Kentucky Derby Gala raised $5000 in net revenue for community television in the Ludlow area. Here's a short "teaser" clip from the festivities - our MC George Thomson, leading the crowd through the singing of "Old Kentucky Home":
