A preview of the "Hometown Pride USA" pilot featuring Youngstown was held recently in the village's Red Brick School Village Center.
A spaghetti dinner, catered by Bandana's Bar and Grill, with the proceeds to benefit Old Fort Niagara, was held before the screening of the movie. Sean B. Gilgore, vice president of marketing and social media for Hometown Pride USA, discussed the making of the film before showing the premiere episode to the audience. The production crew held a Q-and-A session following the screening. (photo by Wayne Peters)
