Have you ever met someone in your travels who you found to be an interesting person? or been to a local business and thought what an amazing place this is? and wished more people could know about this. If you are a viewer of Connecting Point you may have noticed our attempt to introduce you to people like this through our Making It Here series.
MAKING IT HERE celebrates an aspect of life that almost all people share: most of us go to work each day and many people are passionate about that work and what they do.
This season on Connecting Point, we will be rejuvenating that popular Making It Here series on alternating Monday nights. Our videographers and producers will introduce you to the entrepreneur who has turned an idea into an entire industry, the hobbyist who has taken a lifelong passion and created a thriving business, the artist or crafts person who’s skill and attention to detail has gained worldwide recognition, and even the everyday worker who takes such extraordinary pride in the quality of their work because they know it not only provides for their family but improves the community. These stories go beyond highlighting the extraordinary things that people do, they will take viewers to businesses and activities that they never knew existed in their own backyards. Perhaps you’ve already seen some of these stories or have an idea that you would like us to check out; drop us an email at connectingpoint.wgby.org and tell us who they are and how we can get in touch with them.
Some of the stories to look out for this season are producer Tony Dunne’s story of the 100 year old Harry’s Super Market in Pittsfield or producer Dave Frasers visit to the Forest Park Farmers Market to find Steve Cary and his Velma’s Wicked Delicious Kettle Corn.
As always, thanks for watching.Comments(0)
