Online & Informed

Headline_May5.pngBY: LAUREN COSTELLO

I always think it’s funny when people see me in the hallway and say “hey, what are you doing out of the studio?!” But a lot of stuff happens outside of these doors! Whether we’re recording a Town Hall, outside flying the drone, or over in NG filming, we are always on the go. How can you keep up with everything? Easy:

Over the past few months there have been many important Town Hall meetings that we have filmed. This includes any Long Range Planning Meetings, Dining Town Halls, Resident Town Halls, MaACCRA events, and so many more! With Long Range Planning picking up, a great way to stay informed is through our website:

How does our website work? After a show airs at 10AM on Channel 973, we then transfer the show right to our website where it lives for one year. This has been extremely convenient on so many levels. First, if you miss the show that aired that day, you can go right to the website and watch it in it’s entirety. Second, if you don’t have time to watch the entire show online, you can fast forward or select the certain part of the show you want to watch. Third, you are able to share the links with your family and friends so they are able to stay informed. Fourth, you can even download the show and have it on your computer forever. Fifth…well, I’ll stop there because I could go on and on and on…

You can visit our website using your smartphone, tablet, or computer How awesome, right?! Want to check it out now? Here, let me help: 

I think the most interesting thing I have experienced with the website occured when I spoke with two potential residents looking to move to Oak Crest. I remember them asking me what they can do here. So instead of telling them, I showed them. They were amazed. They couldn’t believe we had all the programming online. Town Halls, Game Shows, Politicians, Call In Shows…they didn’t know what to watch first.

The best part about speaking with those two residents was showing them what was happening at Oak Crest while they waited to move in. They never had to feel out of the loop. They would be able to know names and faces before moving in. They could watch group spotlight programs to know what organization they wanted to join. Just because they didn’t live here yet didn’t mean they couldn’t be involved or informed.

So if you have a “smart”device, head over to our website and check it out–we would love to hear your thoughts.

You can always email us your ideas at as well.
