"PAC 14 offers programs that are very informative with good community resources and information. A great example would be the presentation on double bypass surgery which was extremely interesting, particularly showing how the team worked like a symphony.

In the past, she has been unable to watch a show like this due to a family member undergoing the procedure, but the way it was presented made it easier because it touched us all in our lives."

"The great things about PAC 14 are that it is localized, informative and lets you know what is going on in the area and how the people that live here share their ideas on how they deal with things and government.

- Wayne Hancock
"I commend PAC 14 for celebrating and focusing on the good that youth and others do for their communities. The show "Hometown Heroes" does a wonderful job telling the stories of youth who have worked to make their communities a better place. Highlighting their stories can encourage others to get involved in community service. PAC 14 is the only local source for this type of programming that I have found. Keep up the good work, PAC 14!
- Karen Bell
"Since MAC (Maintaining Active Citizens), Your Area Agency on Aging, has been on PAC 14, people have come up to us and said: "We did not know MAC did this or that. Thanks for using PAC 14 to inform us."

Additionally, the educational opportunities are essential to the well-being of our community. PAC-14's quality, staff, and professional programming are an asset to Greater Salisbury. Thanks you for the opportunity to be a part of your success."
- Mr. Dave B. Ganoe, local photographer and PAC 14 viewer
"PAC 14 is one of Wicomico County’s valuable assets. From the shows on this public access channel we learn about other assets in the county. People and non-profits have an opportunity to tell their stories to the community. As a result we become more informed citizens and connected with one another through a common shared experience. As the producer of Hometown Heroes I am pleased that PAC 14 provides the forum for us to tell the stories of young people who are making a difference in our community. As I worked on this project over the last four years I have always appreciated the technical assistance for the PAC 14 staff in making Hometown Heroes a quality show. To enhance what PAC 14 can offer to the public it needs ongoing support from the public and our elected officials. Please take the opportunity to learn what our elected officials can do to sustain and develop this asset. You, too, can be Hometown Hero for PAC 14."
- Dr. Geroge Whtiehead, "Salisbury's Promise"
"We have received a great deal of positive feedback from viewers of the programs we have made by working with PAC14. Our TV presentations reach a large number of community members who might not be able to come to our workshops in person. After each program airs, new viewers tell me, "I saw you on TV - I didn't know the Ward Museum offered so many different things to do." PAC14 has been a great help with our mission of preserving traditional art forms for future generations."
- Cynthia Byrd, Ph.D., Curator and Folklorist, The Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art, Salisbury University

"It's clear you've done a lot for this community through PAC14, if on a wing and a prayer and a lot of good will. Perhaps
one of the best things I've seen, from my limited vantage, is that you've brought local nonprofit and educational entities
a little closer together, no small feat in Wicomico County. For this and all that you've been able to do for the community, you and PAC14 deserve a big pat on the back, particularly during these tough times. The community needs PAC14, whether it knows it or not, for many important reasons too many to numerate here. I wish you every success."
- Linda Duyer"This email is to thank PAC-14 for doing such a professional job of covering and taping the 1st District Congressional Race Debate on Sept. 30th and the talk by CBS News Commentator Dotty Lynch on the Presidential election.

On behalf of PACE, thank you for the valuable service you provide to our community!"
