Congratulations to Marilyn Rowland, a longtime FCTV member and producer, for being awarded the second annual Priscilla “Pucky” Roslansky Memorial Fund Award. Rowland’s video submission entitled “Lawanna Lynn Campbell: Is She Dead Yet?” is a recording of a discussion, sponsored by the Cape Cod Center for Women, on the topic of domestic violence that took place at the Public Falmouth Library on October 26, 2013. Rowland’s supporting submission, “One Billion Rising”, documents a growing group of women recognizing violence against women and working to help victims heal around the world. These two programs, currently available for viewing on Public Channel 13 and at fctv.org, demonstrate Rowland’s dedication to promoting important topics within the Falmouth community.
