Thank you to all who came out for the open house last week to celebrate 15 years of community TV in the Okemo Valley. An unofficial tally estimated there were 60 attendees. We documented the occasion with video footage and photographs, which will be edited into a forthcoming montage. Shown below is a shot of the LPCTV Board of Directors & staff, posing with the cake; and the other photo is a close-up of the cake, showing the fine craftsmanship and creativity employed by Big Eyes Bakery.
A special "thank you" goes out to the restaurants who provided the "small bites": Brook Farm Vineyards, The Combes Family Inn, The Killarney, Mojo Cafe, Sam's Steakhouse, Stemwinder, & Table 19, as well as the cider from Brown's Orchard in Castleton.
Here's a video we made of the occasion:

"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:
On June 16th, we held our annual meeting, which included the Board of Directors election. There were 68 valid ballots cast. 3 of the 6 candidates were duly elected, according to the rules posted on the ballots: Sharon Combes-Farr, Jennifer McBride, and Noah Schmidt. We welcome them to the LPCTV Board of Directors.
The Board will be holding its first meeting of the year on July 13th; at that meeting, the Board will consider appointing additional seats.
Thank you to all the candidates and those who voted for their participation & interest in LPCTV!
