Explore Our Town: Middletown

 

Our Town is:

  • A community project wherein neighbors become filmmakers who tell the stories of their town;
  • Part fund-raiser, part community builder, part historical and cultural documentary, and part “day-in-the-life” video scrapbook;
  •  Our Town shares with viewers the local legends, historical happenings, and backyard secrets of the particular town and its villages – untold or uncelebrated stories that capture the essence of the town (*you do not need to be a resident to participate)
  • Stories and interviews are then edited together by Rhode Island PBS, with the finished product being a 1-hour documentary about the town that will premiere live on Rhode Island PBS on September 4, 2019.  

We invite you to join us for an informational meeting on Monday, March 18 at 5:30 pm at the Middletown Public Librarylocated at 700 West Main Road. The meeting is open to the general public, so if you know of anyone who might be interested in learning about all the ways to get involved or has a unique story to share about the town, please encourage them to attend.
** Our snow date will be on Thursday, March 21 at 5:30.
