The name evolved from efforts to procure property for the Community TV Station that is on The Parade Ground in Wallingford, CT. The Parade Ground remains a gathering place of residents for community events. For this team-to-be, it is a symbol of a place where people can give voice to ideas, share news, and inform others.
The creation of timely, local content requires a community of volunteers. The station’s board members and staff are not producers or content creators. Similar to all residents, they can independently produce, but the role of staff is to train, facilitate, and mentor those seeking to develop digital media skills and use these skills to share information and stories or entertain. Content for Community TV must be made, or acquired, by community members.
We have the tools, but without you, there are no news stories, coverage of local events, or archival history being made.
