BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Experience life in Clarence, N.Y. through the eyes of 22 residents who captured the people, places and happenings of their hometown for the latest installment of WNED-TV’s OUR TOWN series.

Their video footage was edited and compiled into the television program, OUR TOWN: Clarence. The volunteers also were interviewed about the topics they covered, and their commentary serves as the narration behind the program.

The resulting “video scrapbook” premieres on WNED-TV Sat., Sept. 25 at 6:30 pm.
