North Brunswick County Spotlight! Literally and Figuratively.

January is North Brunswick County month for WWAY-TV3's Cape Fear Pride promotion. Each Friday in the month WWAY-TV3 will broadcast live from a different location in our area. In conjunction with the North Brunswick Chamber of Commerce, these events will also be Business After Hours occasions for NBCC - what that means for you (and us) is food and a (possibly) drink and a chance to meet and mingle with other business professionals.

So last Friday was the first BAH in this month's format, held at the All Souls Episcopal Church in Northwest. A good representative group from the NBCC was in attendance at the church during the filming. We didn't have a lot of time for talking in the beginning, or at least not constantly, since the WWAY-TV3 production crew and talent (the on-air folks) were busy doing their thing. We also didn't talk much when the Northwest Community Choir sang. These folks are from four different churches in Northwest. They've been getting together for years whenever the call goes out for the Community Choir. And lemme tell ya, they are good! The WWAY-TV3 folks mixed in a bit with them and that was fun, but the choir wasn't phased and kept on doing their thing.

When we first arrived the TV crew was still setting up.

Soon the on-air personalities took over for their live spots. Including news (below)

and the weather lady (in the red sweater below)

After 6:30, when the broadcasting was over, we put on our coats and went next door for food and fellowship.

A good time was had by all. Thanks Northwest, thanks, WWAY-TV3, and thanks to the North Brunswick Chamber of Commerce.
