Executive Directions
     — Tom Leypoldt, PEGTV Executive Director
I hope you are having a wonderful summer.  The Academic Showdown was a great success with Fair Haven winning the championship trophy. It was very exciting to watch and I was so impressed with how smart kids are these days.  The series was a great addition to Channel 20’s schedule. Channel 20 also showcased almost all of the areas high school graduations.  PEGTV is grateful for the many volunteers that recorded a graduation on our behalf, especially  since many of the ceremonies took place on the same night.  You might have also noticed several extra long live municipal meetings on the Government Channel.  Lots of folks have commented on how nice it is to be able to watch them at home or refer to them later on our website.  The ACCESS crew has done an outstanding job reaching the smaller towns in Rutland County and they are always looking for more positive topics to cover.  The PEGTV gang is standing by to help you promote your non-profit idea or fundraiser.  Stop by with your information and say hello to your favorite PEGTV personality.
