Portsmouth has been selected as one of three Rhode Island towns to be featured in a RIPBS "day-in-the-life" tv program called "Our Town," and they are looking for local videographers and storytellers to capture the unique flavor of our community. From the web site:
Our Town features the local legends, historical happenings, and backyard secrets that our Rhode Island towns and villages have to offer - those untold or uncelebrated stories that capture the essence of the town. Rhode Island PBS does not choose the stories - you do!
You can be a part of the Our Town story by collecting video and being one of the storytellers. Help document the people, places, and happenings in your community. No experience is necessary, just enthusiasm!
Town residents are especially urged to participate - you know all those great stories! But because Our Town is all about sharing, you do not have to live in the town if you have a great story to tell or would like to help record great town stories.
If you're interested in participating, there will be a planning meeting on Monday, April 13 at 5:30 p.m. at the Portsmouth Library. Hope to see you there!
Nice town, y'know what I mean?
