Local News

It was a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Sunday, performer and actor Dr. Francois Clemmons joined Mountain Lake PBS, and the Strand Center for The Arts in showing the newly released documentary “Won’t You be My Neighbor?”. 

The film surrounded the Mr. Fred Rogers, both on the set of his nationally recognized program, and his life at home. Testimonies from close family and friends were included as well as never before seen clips from behind the scenes of the show. 

After the documentary, guests enjoyed participating in a Q and A with Dr. Clemmons, as well as a performance of two familiar songs. 

The evening ended in true “Land of Make Believe” fashion with hugs, and poster signings. The event was free and open to the public. Many more events like this can be found on www.mountainlake.org
