Clarence in the Spotlight With WNED's Our Town

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.

In June, the volunteer filmmakers videotaped topics of interest or unique town assets, including history, architecture, schools, businesses and natural places. 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.
