A small but enthusiastic crowd came to the Belfast Community TV Sneak Preview and open House at the Belfast Library last Thursday evening.

About 30 people came to enjoy some food as well as the live and taped preview of what will soon be gracing Cable Channel 2, including the folks at The Citizen who gave us this great photo of Program Director, Ned Lightner, holding forth here on TV.

Also shown below are Kristen Burkholder, Jenny Tibbetts and Ando Anderson singing their underwriter jingles. You can also read more about it and see other photos taken by Tina Shute coming in the next Citizen.

Special thanks to our first station supporters: Darby's Restaurant, the Belfast Co-op, Belfast Soup & Sandwich, Community Chiropractic and Reid's Cycle in Northport. And many thanks to Websafe Studio for the technical assistance, boundless encouragement and imagination all which inspires BCTV greatly, and to Jan and David County Copy for their endless help. What a cool bunch of folk in this place!
