To help you make the most out of 2018 we came up with this list of 10 great New Year’s resolutions!

1) Schedule some “me time” for a relaxing Sunday evening with “Victoria”

Take a break on Sunday nights with a glass of wine, or whatever your guilty pleasure happens to be, and watch season 2 of Victoria.

One of the highest-rated dramas on PBS in 20 years, Victoria’s premiere season was hailed as a “gem” by The Hollywood Reporter and a “breakout hit” by Harpers Bazaar. The series returns for Season 2 on January 14th, 2018!

2) Spend time with the kids

Discover a new kids program to love with Pinkalicious & Peterrific. Catch the premiere of Pinkalicious & Peterrific on PBS KIDS on February 19, 2018! Or join us at the studio for a special “Wild Kratz Day at the Beach Event” on February 16th.  We’ll have a screening, arts and crafts and snacks for you and the family to enjoy for free!

3) Have more date nights

Keep an eye out for our yearly “Dinner of the Month Raffle.”  You could win dinner for two at a different restaurant every month! Details coming soon!

4) Start eating healthier!

Since the early days of TV cooking with the great Julia Child, PBS has been an amazing place for REAL cooking instruction. Join us every Saturday for a stew pot full of cooking shows to help you get back in the kitchen. From 12:00-4:00 enjoy cooking shows with Martha Stewart and more!

5) Get Smarter!

Every Wednesday night tune in for our “Think Wednesday” programming and an evening of brain building brilliant broadcasts with Nature, NOVA and more.

6) Get involved in your community!

Keep up to date with what is going on in your community with weekly episodes of Mountain Lake Journal. Join us for our in studio forums about important local issues.  Also, check out our latest digital series about Veterans in our community with Vets Coming Home.

7) Get Cultured!

Find out about all the cultural activities happening in our region with Paul Larson’s Spotlight.

Spotlight shines soon on two Montreal artists. Francois Escalmel has shrunk himself down into a miniature world of his own creation, and Philippe Van Eetvelt has invented a machine that helps him paint in time with the keys of a piano. Watch for these segments and more stories about artists and performers who shine brightly. You’re also invited to explore the Spotlight webpage, an archive of adventures through the arts in the North Country, Champlain Valley, Montreal and beyond.

8) Keep up on current events!

Tune in weeknights for a big dose of what’s going on in the world, from sources you can truly trust.  BBC World News at 11:00, Amanpour on PBS at 12:00 and now a special airing of Mountain Lake Journal on Friday night at midnight.

9) Give more!

Without your support, organizations like Mountain Lake PBS couldn’t exist!  Consider supporting the station so we can continue our mission to provide high quality programming for children, families and adults.

10) Try something new!

We are always looking for new places to travel and things to do for you! Check out People Near Here or Northbound and Around for great ideas on new things to try this year!
