Tonight the flash bulbs (do they still have flash bulbs?) will be popping at the Rye Free Reading Room for the Rye TV Margie Awards, recognizing the very best in Rye public access TV. And before you Hollywood types snicker and sneer, we have some serious talent right here in our city of 15,000 (I was a judge and witnessed the excellent work with my own eyes).

There will be a reception with light refreshments until 8 PM and then Rye Cable and Communications Committee as Chair Doug Carey will give the official welcome and then hand it off to Doren and Fairchild.
