The 13th Annual Foodathon went well. It was the first time that all the guests came to AOTV. It was more work for set up and clean up, but it was much easier to control the flow and the day. Thanks to all the extra volunteers that were needed on cameras and in the control room. The Foodathon raises food and funds for five food panties in the area. All the donations stay local. In 12 hours the Foodathon raised $22,759 before the coins and pledges were counted.
Thanks to all the major collaborators: WJDF, Witty’s Funural Home, Orange Historical Society, and to the major sponsors; Hannaford Supermarket, Pete’s Tire Barns.
The WWII reenactment was on May 21 and May 22. AOTV had four crew people for Saturday and three for Sunday to cover the event. There is a lot of great footage which means there is a lot of editing to do. It was a great collaborative effort to see the community work together so well.
