THE GREENBURGH YOU TUBE INITIATIVE--VOLUNTEERS WANTED
Release Date: July 13, 2008
THE GREENBURGH YOU TUBE INITIATIVE--HUNDREDS OF SHORT VIDEOS ABOUT OUR TOWN
INITIATIVE WILL HELP CONVINCE PEOPLE INTERESTED IN MOVING TO GREENBURGH THAT GREENBURGH IS ONE OF THE BEST PLACES TO LIVE.
Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner announced a new initiative --being headed up by student intern Andy Laub. The project will be called the Greenburgh You Tube initiative.
Andy, a resident of Ardsley (recent grad of the Soundview PreparatorySchool in Yorktown, founder of the Politics Club and a soon to be freshman at Dickinson College) will produce many short video's highlighting different aspects of life in Greenburgh. Each of these short video's will be posted on You Tube. Last week, for example, Andy, posted the following on You Tube:
* The Town Board ceremony honoring John Evans of Greenburgh - a blind Empire State Physically Challenged Gold Medal Award Winner;
* A brief interview with a town employee who drives an electric powered vehicle around Anthony Veteran town park;
*An interview with pool lifeguards;
*Video's of the town lap pool (interview with a swimmer) and of the interactive kiddy pool.
* Highlights of this pasts Saturday's concert at the E Hartsdale farmer's market will be posted this coming week. Short video's of other town programs will also be shown on You Tube.
During the summer Andy will interview civic leaders, department heads, elected officials, employees. He will produce video's featuring the work our employees do. We will visit parks, the various business districts, different neighborhoods, municipal buildings and we will interview senior citizens who might want to record some of their memories about Greenburgh's past.
Feiner said that after the summer internship program ends - the YOU TUBE INITIATIVE will continue. We're looking for volunteers who might be interested in helping us produce other GREENBURGH YOU TUBE video's. We expect hundreds of very short video's to be posted during the coming year. The goal: people who are considering moving into the town will be able to see what living in Greenburgh is like. We think that Greenburgh is a great community --we want people to be able to learn as much about the town by watching short video's of Greenburgh on You Tube. Those interested in watching the video's should visit. www.youtube.com and search Greenburgh.
Residents who are interested in helping with the Greenburgh You Tube Initiative (and those who would like to be interviewed) should e mail firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like us to feature your neighborhood on a video - please advise. Please also help us by suggesting programs, employees, services, individuals that should be profiled. If you have a camera - you can help us by posting your video's about Greenburgh on You Tube. Take video's of your neighborhood, the best playgrounds in town, your favorite restaurants and stores, interview your neighbors. Post the video's yourself or send your video to Supervisor Paul Feiner at Greenburgh Town Hall.
