In 2012, the Falmouth Community Television Board of Directors established the PRISCILLA (“Pucky”) ROSLANSKY MEMORIAL FUND in memory of Priscilla (“Pucky”) Roslansky, PhD, of Woods Hole, Massachusetts, a long time member, producer and supporter of FCTV.
After her retirement as the research director at the Associates of Cape Cod, Pucky became an active member, producer, and supporter at Falmouth Community Television, where she made hundreds of videos on a variety of subjects including environmental, medical and other issues. FCTV named an editing studio in her honor in 2010. If she thought of a topic the town needed to better understand she promptly made a video on the subject to educate her community and improve the political discourse. She believed firmly that all politics are local and that if the people lead the leaders will follow.
