The drive to bring television reception to Southwestern Nebraska ground steadily forward last week throughout the drive area. The total amount collected as of Sunday night stood at approximately $100,000, 50% of the goal.
According to the contract with KHOL-TV, the station that will build and operate the satellite transmitter, the money must be raised by April 15th. This means that a tremendous boost must be given by everyone during the next three weeks to put this drive over the top.
The highlight of the week’s activities was the tremendous rally in McCook last Thursday night. Billed as the TV Jamboree, this show attracted more than 3,000 people to the auditorium from all corners of the area.
Perkins and Hayes counties lead the parade of quotas for the week. Perkins has reached 84% of its total needed and Hayes stood at 83%.
