Needham Darfur Initiative makes TV News!

On Tuesday Josee Lapointe, Public Affairs Producer at The Needham Channel (TNC), captured the first two "handoffs" of the banners --- one to Rev. Debora Jackson of the First Baptist Church, the other to John Moran, owner of the UPS store in town.

We were warned in advance that this was a news story --- there was to be no artificial staging, we weren't to suggest questions for her to ask, etc. I started to get a little nervous.

The questions were what you'd expect --- why would your church/business here in Needham put up a prominent banner about a situation occurring so far away in Africa? Without any advanced warning or preparation, I can tell you that both Rev. Jackson and John gave answers that were truly touching.

You'll all be proud of them when you see the show. (We don't know the story length, but we do know it will be on.) Thursday at 7:30 PM, on TNC (# ?).
