TV producer looking for York County’s heart and soul

Christopher Cassel is a York College alumnus, class of 1998, who produces and directs documentaries.
He’s working on a pilot for a Hallmark Channel series called “Only in America” and is considering York as a location.
He’s looking for information, but more on that in a second.
Here’s how Christopher describes the project:

“The project will trace the journey of a writer and photographer on a cross-country adventure as they seek out the “heart & soul” of the United States for a book project. Each episode focuses on a different town or region, and explores what makes it a unique thread in the fabric of America.
“Naturally, I’m looking at York as our location for the first episode. It has an ideal cross-section of urban and rural, the right balance of racial diversity, and the All-American past and present that make it a perfect choice for what we’re doing.”

Christopher is seeking from folks and groups around York personal stories that will fit such show segments as:
1. Local Unsung Hero.
2. Odd & Little Known.
3. Family Affair (a family that is cooperating on either a unique business, social or recreational project).
4. Community Service (an individual or group that is making a difference in a very unique way).
