BENNINGTON - Catamount Access Television (CAT-TV) will hold a structured Open House on Tuesday, May 6 beginning at 5:30 p.m.
CAT-TV operates the area's local Public, Educational and Governmental Access Channels, while providing access and training for local citizens to make use of those channels. Community members are encouraged to create local programming using the equipment and facilities maintained by CAT-TV which is then shown on the three cable access channels, channels 15, 16 and 17, for the community's enjoyment. The result is a valuable source for local information, a place for folks to learn video technology and a place for citizens to have their voices heard in local media.
During the one hour long event, those attending will have the opportunity to learn about the organizations history - why and how it exists, classes it offers, how to submit messages to the community bulletin board, how CAT-TV can help non-profit organizations, the new logo, and many more topics. Staff members will be available to answer questions about the organization, equipment used, classes, and other topics. A tour of the facility will be given. Refreshments will be served.
New members that live, work or go to school full time in Bennington, Woodford, Shaftsbury, Pownal and North Bennington can sign up for free, while others, may become a member for a nominal fee.
CAT-TV Studio is located at 625 Main St., just to the right of the First Baptist Church, across from Mahar's Funeral Home.
