From the Producer Pod-
December 22 and December 23 Edition
Hi It's Jayne Ann Bugda from the Producer
Pod-here are some weekend highlights!
Our quote for the weekend: "What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace." Agnes M. Pahro
I wish you all a blessed and Merry Christmas.

On Monday, December 24- The Eyewitness News team and behind the scenes team will once again read "The Night Before Christmas". This is a long time tradition for Eyewitness News. It all began many years ago, with our dear friend and former anchorman Keith Martin. We now keep the tradition alive! It is our Christmas Card to you our viewers.
Mark Hiller featured the story of the students and staff at Riverside Elementary West who have been working very hard to clean up the Lackawanna River. The River is now up for a big award. We can help honor the work of the students and staff by casting a vote for the river.
The River of the Year contest is sponsored by the Pennsylvania Organization for Watersheds and Rivers and the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. You can cast your ballot for the Lackawanna River by logging onto http://pawatersheds.org/vote/.The on-line voting for river of the year ends January 18th.
