New Bylaws

posted Aug 28, 2016, 11:22 AM by Admin Admin

The Board of Directors, members, and volunteers from the greater community have embarked on a journey of updating, preserving, and protecting the mission of the organization.  This has encompassed necessary work on the building itself, updating displays, and creating policies and procedures for guidance and a framework to work within.  

The Board took action by hiring attorney Elliott J. Ehrenreich of Know McLaughlin Gornall & Sennet, P.C. to update the bylaws so that they accurately reflect our existence as in incorporated, non-profit organization.  On August 22, 2016, we presented the bylaws for the member's consideration; the vote was unanimous in accepting them.

Our Town: Corry  -  "Our Town is a video scrapbook of the people, places, and happenings of the Corry, PA area, as seen through the eyes of the residents.  Community members collected video footage and still photos to showcase their "Corry stories" and then talked about each of their topics with a WQLN producer in a casual on-camera interview.  These stories were combined to create the Our Town: Corry program, which was broadcast on WQLN-TV 54.1 with live streaming at WQLN.org.
