-Production Coordinator Chris Lawn took A Walk in the Garden with Liz Davey as she dug up rosemary from the herb garden, discussed the process of field-curing onions, provided suggestions for sprucing up window boxes, and made scrumptious sausage and kale soup accompanied by a cheesy corn dip and carrot-zucchini bars!

-On Tuesday evening, the NCTV staff taught our Social Media Workshop, which provided an opportunity to get on board with current trends and demystify Facebook, Twitter, and learn how to utilize these impressive online tools to keep up with family and friends!

-On Wednesday, Chris Lawn visited the Norfolk Recreation Department to meet with Director Ann Proto and local Girl Scout Caitlin to discuss ideas for her upcoming Gold Award Project centered around healthier eating and living habits!

-Today, NCTV held its first official (and successful!) Public Service Announcement Day and welcomed both non-profit AND government boards including the Good Tymes Banjo Band, the Norfolk Department of Public Works, the Norfolk Girl Scouts, the Norfolk Cultural Council, the Garden Club of Norfolk, Norfolk Affordable Housing, the Norfolk Senior Center, and the Purr-fect Cat Shelter!  A big, giant THANK YOU to everyone involved.  We look forward to hosting it again!


-This upcoming Tuesday, September 22, 2015 at 6:30 PM in the main studio, Production Coordinator Chris Lawn will teach our Clicking Trickery Workshop, which will focus on different types of e-mail scams, what websites to trust, how to make the most of an internet search, and online shopping do's and do not's!  For more info, or to sign up online, click here or just show up the day of!

-As part of Media Literacy Month, next Thursday, September 24, 2015 at 6:30 PM, NCTV will be hosting a screening of Mean World, a documentary that takes dead aim at a commercial media system that thrives on violence, stereotypes, and the cultivation of anxiety, and also shows how these media-induced fears and anxieties provide fertile ground for intolerance, extremism, and a paranoid style of politics that threatens basic democratic values.  WARNING: MAY CONTAIN GRAPHIC OR VIOLENT IMAGES NOT SUITABLE FOR ALL AUDIENCES!
