With help from Dave Haldiman, the latest episode of Discover Janesville has been filmed. This time, we shot on location at Roosevelt elementary. Discover Janesville’s guests were Dr. Lynn Karges, Becky Weber-Johnson, Pam Good and and Earl Gretschman.

I’m very excited about our next program, which is scheduled to be filmed in early June. Our guests will include Kevin Murray and Roger Axtell.

Here’s the latest episode of Discover Janesville with Yuri Rashkin, featuring interviews with Nick Fitzgerald, Pam Van Brocklin and Kay and Neil Deupree!

Nick is the leader of the Young Professionals group in Janesville and was just named one of the People Who Matter by the Janesville Gazette. Nick is an all around great guy who always looks for a way to help.

Pam Van Brocklin is the Vice President of Friends of Riverside Park group. A grass roots organization, the Friends were organized just a few years ago, and have already made a major impact on this historic Janesville park. Pam is very passionate about the park and its history, and she’s not alone.

Kay and Neil Deupree are involved in so many different organizations and projects that help make Janesville a better place to live, that I was not even sure how to introduce them. Having people who feel that their involvement in our community matters is so important, and I was glad that Kay and Neil could take a part in Discover Janesville. Especially considering that the patio at Mocha Moments was getting a bit chilly in early April when we filmed this episode.
