    Dear Cheryl and Don,

    I hope you are enjoying the summer, as I am, swimming, hiking, and writing.

    Glennis and I will miss Anais’ upcoming performance at Dartmouth because we’ll be out of town. However, we’d love to see her while she’s in Hanover.

    Could you send us her email address?

    All the best,

    Jeffrey Ruoff

    Cheryl, as you know Middlebury Community Television attempts to tell the stories of the Middlebury-area community. We use our annual meeting—March 28, 4:30 in the conference room of the town hall—to ask viewers what we are doing well and what we can do better. One of the questions we have been dealing with is, “What is our role in the digital age of YouTube and podcasts where everyone can be their own producer and distributor?” Do we stick to meeting coverage, church services, interview shows? Can we help distribute videos and podcasts and be a community archive for them?

    P.S. Is lambing over?
         
    Here is Kurt Broderson’s (executive director) email invitation:

         We’d like to invite you to Middlebury Community Television’s 2018 Annual Meeting, to be held at 4:30 PM on Wednesday, Mar. 28 in the selectboard meeting room of the Middlebury Town Offices.  Besides food, samples of our current programs, and demonstration of equipment you can learn to use, we’ll be having a facilitated discussion in small groups about the state of the media in Middlebury: How is MCTV meeting the community’s needs, where can we improve, and where are things headed?  You’ve been a friend of MCTV in the past, and we’d like to hear what you have to say today.  We hope you can save the date, and we’ll let you know more as our meeting gets closer.
