THIS WEEKEND: WCTV To Hold Food Drive At Market Basket This Saturday, February 8

The below announcement was submitted by Shaun Neville, Executive Director of Wilmington Community Television (WCTV):

WILMINGTON, MA — WCTV’s Donations from the Heart Food Drive is this Saturday, February 8, 2020, from 9am to 1pm, at Market Basket.

This annual event is held on the Saturday before Valentine’s Day with proceeds benefiting the Wilmington Food Pantry.

If you’re out and about this Saturday, pick something up or make a cash donation. Members of WCTV’s Weekend Youth Program will be handing out flyers to shoppers and collecting food at the front of the store.

This event is just another example of how WCTV works with our partners in the community.

For the first time ever, WCTV is recording all the Finance Committee meetings, as that board reviews next year’s town budget. There are 10 total meetings, with each one focused on a specific part of town government. Special meetings are scheduled to discuss big spending items like public safety, the Wilmington Public Schools and Shawsheen Tech.

You can watch the first four of those Finance meetings on WCTV’s Meetings Channel (Comcast 22 / Verizon 38) or at wctv.org/vod.  Topics included the Planning Department, Building Inspector, DPW and Health Department.

Next week, meetings will air live on Tuesday and Thursday at 7PM. The Committee takes off the week of school vacation (February 17-21) but then is back for two more weeks of meetings (happening on Tuesdays and Thursdays).

These programs may be boring to many of our viewers, but it’s your best way to get a full picture of town spending. By airing these meetings on WCTV, Wilmington’s town employees and Finance Committee members are opening the process up to the public.  I hope folks who pay close attention to how the town’s money is spent tune in to hear these important presentations and discussions.

You may have heard there were some issues in Iowa this past week with an “app”.  I think it had something to do with the presidential election?

Here’s your reminder that WCTV has a mobile app! And while it occasionally goes offline, we’ve heard it’s very easy to use!

Not only will you get access to WCTV programs, live streams and TV schedules, you’ll also get mobile alerts when live programming is about to being on WCTV.

As we move closer to the town election in April, it’s where you can stream debates and election results on the go!

The WCTV App is available for Apple and Android devices.
