Central Lincoln County YMCA and Lincoln County Television are partnering to produce “Stories from the Pandemic.”
The new 40-minute show featuring members of the Lincoln County community airs Saturday, Sept. 4 at 7 p.m. on Spectrum/Tidewater 7 and LCTV.org, with stories from the COVID-19 pandemic and vaccination programs.
“Healthy living and social responsibility are at the heart of our Y mission, so we feel it’s important to do our part in educating the community about the COVID-19 vaccine. We love to educate through stories and everyone has a pandemic story to share, with this show we capture a few of them,” says Casey Clark Kelley, Central Lincoln County YMCA CEO.
This show features CLC YMCA school age enrichment staff from Newcastle: Sophie Schumacher, Caitlin Betts, and Mason Bull; Jefferson family Jennifer Kopp, Samantha Kopp, and Abby Kopp; and Roman Mank, a Bremen native.
“As a public access station, Lincoln County Television’s mission is to help strengthen our community connections by broadcasting municipal meetings, cultural events, community programs, educational shows, and youth sports. We’re proud to partner on these COVID-19 shows,” says Larry Sidelinger, Lincoln County Television board of directors president.
