Help Requested for ‘Our Town’

The Old Forge Historical Society is preparing for a WVIA-TV “Our Town” production that will premiere in March, 2018, and the group is appealing to all members of the community, churches, businesses, civic organizations and families to come forward to help gather the material to make this one of the best “Our Town” productions ever done with WVIA.

Two meetings scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 9, and Thursday, Nov. 16 will explain to the community what we are looking for, in order to make this project a success. The meetings will be held in the auditorium of St. Lawrence O’Toole at 620 S. Main St., at 7 p.m. both evenings.

There is parking in the rear of the church and handicap parking to the side of the church. Enter the auditorium using the side entrance. Handicap accessibility is available by elevator located in the front of the church.

The group is in need of stories, pictures (photos, movies and videos), and artifacts that will help us to formulate the production of “Our Town: Old Forge.” If you cannot make these meetings, the email address is
