DALLAS – “Our Town Dallas,” the next edition in WVIA’s “Our Town” series, premieres at 7 p.m. on Thursday on WVIA TV. An encore presentation will be broadcast at noon on Sunday.
As northeastern Pennsylvania’s and the central Susquehanna Valley’s member supported public television station serving a very large geographic area, the “Our Town” project was initiated in an effort to involve the communities and their residents with WVIA public media. The “Our Town” television series is intended to treat viewers to the many personalities, perspectives, and possibilities that local towns have to offer.
Natona Mills, a thriving industry in the late 1940’s, is now the Twin Stacks Center offering new opportunities in the Back Mountain. Students in the Dallas School District connect with community leaders to learn first-hand about preparing for their careers. The Rasmussen House of Misericordia University offers young mothers opportunities to earn their college degrees.
Agricultural roots are generations deep and harvested yearly at Brace’s Orchard. Verve Vertu Art Studio is a haven of creativity and gifted local artists and The Back Mountain Library Auction is one of the highlights of the summer coupled with occasional detours to Harvey’s Lake for a change of scenery.
