Business is winding down for 2012, and many of us are looking forward to spending time with our families. Through partnership with several individuals and businesses who support community television, Fayette TV is excited to offer a slew of family-friendly programming for the holiday season.
The programming block on December 24 and 25 begins with the sound of seasonal music from talented local students. The Albert Gallatin Concert Band’s winter concert will air at 3:00 p.m., followed by Albert Gallatin High School’s choral concert.
At 5:00 p.m., Fayette TV and Stephen E. Kezmarsky III, Funeral Director at Kezmarsky Funeral Home, present “A Time to Remember.” There will be music, poetry, and reflections offered for those of us who are missing a departed loved one this holiday season.
The students at St. John the Evangelist Regional Catholic School will be featured at 7:00 p.m., as we watch the students (some as young as age three!) celebrate the holiday in their own special way. It can be very meaningful to celebrate Christmas through the eyes of a child.
Thanks to the folks at Get A Hobby! and Woodmen of the World (local Field Representative Frank Sabec), we’re offering a re-broadcast of the Home for the Holidays Parade at 9:00 p.m. Chef Mario Porecca and Taylor Hackley serve as commentators, and D. Eric Nuttall and the AGTV students help out as production assistants.
We wrap things up with a special treat at 10:00 p.m. – the “Going LIVE with FCTV” Holiday Special, featuring interactive, fun lessons on Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa, another performance from the Brownsville High School Band, vocal music from Fayette TV’s own Taylor Hackley, and even a “Favorite Fayette County Things” segment.
Remember, all of the programming mentioned here will air on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Check out the column next week for some big announcements on our New Years’ programming. From Fayette TV to you and your families, a blessed holiday!
