Okemo Valley Regional Chamber of Commerce has named LPCTV as its "Member of the Month" for September, in commemoration of our 15th anniversary. Throughout the years, the Chamber and LPCTV have worked in partnership on the production of "Okemo Valley- Your Place in Vermont", a TV show highlighting Chamber members, events, and news.
Founded in in 2001 as a community access TV station, LPCTV has evolved to become what it is today...a non profit, non commercial, independent media resource for the community, operating in a new facility in the Ludlow Community Center complex. We offer equipment, training, and more to individuals and organziations so that they can connect with the community. We have a lot to celebrate, and we are inviting the community to help us in doing just that. A 15th Anniversary Open House will take place at LPCTV on Thursday, September 29 from 5 - 7 pm.
Joining us in the celebration are a handful of local restaurants, who will be offering samples of some of their signature dishes. We are grateful for the support from our business partners, such as these local eateries.
In additiion to the food, we will be offering a tour of our facility & studio. Live music will also be included. Please RSVP here or by emailing Patrick or by calling the station at 228-8808.
We helped Black River Academy Museum (BRAM) produce a new 10-minute promotional video, which shares the story of the building to its visitors. Bill Jenney from the Pres. Coolidge State Historic Site on Plymouth Notch provided the voice over. Music was provided by renowned Vermont musician Spencer Lewis. Thanks to actors Sherri Geimer, Aiyana Fortin, Patrick Cody, Ethan Renkee, Izzy the donkey, Ms. Heidi Baitz & her 6th grade class at Ludlow Elementary School.

"LPCTV provides the Okemo Valley region with equal access to multi-media technology for the purposes of education and information." That's our new mission statement, which was adopted as part of our new strategic plan.
Over the course of the past year, the LPCTV Board of Directors developed a new 5-year strategic plan. That new plan was adopted at the annual meeting in June. Here is a photo of us during planning session from last Fall at the Combes Family Inn:
