That Was the Week That Was Celebrates 200th Anniversary

TW3 Prepares for 200th TV Program Jan. 19

With Celebration Broadcast from Town Hall

(written by Ralph Pace)
 
It all started in 2007 when someone suggested to Patrick Cody, Director of LPCTV, that the area needed a local news program to provide area people regional news that was not always covered by other sources.  That was in 2007.  It's still going on in 2012 as TW3 approaches its 200th episode.
 
Working from a one page "script", the Graham-Pace team began broadcasting "live" programs on Thursday afternoons in 2007.  The program was usually just 30 minutes long and occasionally had actual photographs of events to enhance the news offerings.
 
Then the duo began to realize that people might become tired of two "talking heads".
 
It was at this time that TW3 began to invite guests to discuss organizational events, current local activities, unusual events, and discussions of current problems or issues.  One of the first events that both Graham and Pace enjoyed was the unveiling of a Chester calendar of "appropriately undressed ladies" of Chester.  TW3 followed this with debates on a number of area issues such as the desirability of having a drive through window in a fast food/gas station, the question of death with dignity, and the impact of Jackson-Gore on the community.
 
The 200th broadcast will take place on Thursday, January 19 at 3 PM in the Main Conference Room at Ludlow town Hall.  Frank Heald and Kevin Kuntz will be the guests on this broadcast.  There will be seating for a maximum of 15 people in the audience; the public is invited to attend.   For information, call 228-7239.

People's United Bank Donates $1000 to LPCTV's Building Project

LPCTV would like to thank the Ludlow branch of People's United Bank for its recent $1000 donation towards the new building project.  This donation comes at a very critical time in the timeline of the project. "With the donation from People's, we are one-step closer towards meeting our goal for this first phase of construction", said Executive Director Patrick Cody. "I am personally impressed with the bank's continued support of community organizations", he added. In terms of total fundraising, LPCTV is closing in on the $100,000 mark, and we need $125,000 to make Phase 1 happen. Phase 1 includes all the HVAC, the electrical, insulation, sheet rock, one bathroom, and the enclosure of the studio.
