CAT-TV to host open house on Feb. 7
BENNINGTON ó For those who have wondered what Catamount Access Television is all about or how to get involved with the local public access cable channel, CAT-TV is hosting an open house on Feb. 7 at 6 p.m..
Attendees will learn about how CAT-TV has changed since it left its home at the Masonic Temple building on Main Street. CAT-TV, which celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2012, has had an organization restructuring, added lots of new equipment, brought in new members and has a dedicated staff and board of directors.
The event will teach visitors about how CAT-TV operates seven days a week and 24 hours a day and how meetings recorded by CAT-TV will be available on YouTube.
Staff members will be on hand to provide information on upcoming classes; hands-on demonstrations with equipment; information on promoting programs and public service announcements for non-profit organizations and community events; guided tours; and answers to questions.
CAT-TV is located at 625 Main St. in Bennington.
At the event, which is open to everyone, there will be free giveaways and light refreshments.
