Mayors Ball

Saturday night was another smashing success for McMinnville's Mayor's Ball!  A fundraiser and friendraiser for the Kids on the Block program, the Mayor's Ball treated guests to an evening of fine dining, dancing, and auctions that raised thousands for the City's after school Kids program.  If you couldn't attend this year and would like to check out the gathering, look for telecasts of the Mayor's Ball later this week on MCM-TV. 

MHS Basketball

Fans of Mac High's Grizzly basketball have seen some spectacular action on MCM-TV in recent weeks. Boys and girls contests versus Tualatin and Forest Grove were televised by a terrific group of volunteers. The games are an exciting addition to the MCM programming lineup and feature student play by play announcers and camera crews from McMinnville High School. One more date remains on the basketball TV production schedule. That's February 21 when McMinnville takes on long-time rival Newberg. Due to conference realignment coming next season, the Feb 21 meeting marks the last-ever Pacific Conference basketball matchup between these two schools.

Community Producers

MCM-TV is local televison made by local producers.  The volunteers who create, record and edit programming for MCM viewers are the heart of our community TV station. Whether recording a church service, community event, or a fun performance, our volunteer producers always deserve thanks. This month MCM is recognizing the ongoing contributions of Mike & Elizabeth Santone for their many programs highlighting local arts and activities.  Their most recent production is a collection of poetry readings by citizens from the McMinnville area.  There are three 30 minutes segments.  Check out the first edition of William Stafford Centennial Poetry Reading one February 8th at 1pm here on MCM-TV.  Thank you once again to Mike and Elisabeth, and thanks to all the producers who create great programming for McMinnville Community Media!
