Special station event with Canadian Friends of Mountain Lake PBS
Television brings people together, helps break down barriers in language, culture, geography, and ideology. Our spirits soar, we expand our horizons, we experience new worlds and possibilities.
On August 22, 2016, spirits certainly soared at an exclusive gathering of some of Downton Abbey’s biggest fans. All dressed up to the nines in fabulous period costumes, Canadian Friends of Mountain Lake PBS gathered to celebrate their favorite show and to show their support for Mountain Lake PBS and the incredible programming it offers.
