There will be a meeting on Monday, Jan. 30 at at Greenburgh Town Hall to organize an aggressive campaign to raise funds for the Greenburgh Public Library. 8
You and your neighbors are invited to participate in an exciting initiative—a fundraising effort to help the library raise private dollars to offset the budget cuts. Your help and ideas would be enormously appreciated.
STUDENT NEWS NETWORK TO START AGAIN:
Town clerk Judith Beville will chair the initiative. Interested middle school and high school students will have the opportunity to learn about local government and produce their own cable TV news program.
Last year Town Clerk Judith Beville and I co-sponsored an exciting initiative: SNN. Students from around the town were provided with the opportunity to learn a little bit about government….to learn about the media….and to actually produce and host a cable TV program aired on our local TV channels. Alan Brody of Edgemont volunteered his time and mentored the students.
This year we plan to organize a similar initiative. It will be a shorter program: eight weeks with the first four weeks devoted to learning storyboarding and development and the second four weeks devoted to scheduling the taping of the programs.
If you know of any student interested in participating in the program please advise. We will hold our first meeting at Greenburgh Town Hall on Wednesday, March 7th at 4:15 PM.
Students who complete the project will receive certificates of appreciation from the town at a Town Board meeting. The cable TV program will be aired at a Town Board meeting and on public access TV. If you have experience in the media and would like to help us organize the 2012 Student News Network initiative, please e mail firstname.lastname@example.org or me at email@example.com.
