Sincere thanks to each of you who participated in last night’s Share the Spirit open house! Share the Spirit is an annual holiday party, benefitting five non-profit organizations. Coordinated 360 (subcontracted operator of Fayette TV) served as a business partner for this year’s event. Watch the Herald Standard for this year’s fundraising totals, plus the date for Share the Spirit 2013!
It was appropriate that we celebrated last evening, not only because of the approaching Christmas holiday, but also because last night marked the first night of Hanukkah! Hanukkah is an eight-day Festival of Lights, commemorating the rededication of a Jerusalem temple during a turbulent time period. The holiday is observed with the lighting of the menorah, traditional foods, gifts, and games. To learn more about the cultural significance of Hanukkah, Christmas, and Kwanzaa from local folks who celebrate each holiday, tune in for a special holiday edition of “Going LIVE with FCTV” (December 24 and 25 at 10:00 P.M.)
If you’re finding it hard to celebrate the holidays because you’re missing loved ones whom you’ve lost, please consider honoring those people at a vigil of remembrance tonight at 6 p.m. at the Kezmarsky Funeral Home. Funeral Director Stephen E. Kezmarsky III is inviting everyone to partake in a free community gathering, “A Time to Remember,” in which all of us can support and comfort each other. Local clergy, musicians, and speakers will be offering presentations of hope and healing, and Fayette TV will be filming the ceremony (airing later this month).
The broadcast of “A Time To Remember” is just one example of Fayette TV programming made possible by investment from local individuals and businesses. Like our friends at the Herald-Standard, whom we congratulate on their product re-design, Fayette TV is always growing to better serve you. Your support of community media is deeply needed and always appreciated!
