It didn't take much to get Jane Wong into the North Canton YMCA. And once she was there, she had no trouble staying. Wong, the eldest member of the North Canton YMCA at the age of 96, said a YMCA member approached her in a supermarket in 1987 and suggested she join the Y. And that is all it took for the Hong Kong native to try it out. What's kept her coming back all these years? The swimming programs and the walking track, she said. Plus, "I like it!" she told North Canton Patch Wednesday during the weekly Senior Social group. That day's event honored the YMCA's eldest members, who were treated to a showing of Channel 11's YMCA documentary. The documentary highlights the Y's changes through the past 90 years.

Students got to see, for the first time Friday, their new Channel 11 studio set, donated to them by News Channel 5 in Cleveland
Hoover High's video production students finally got a chance to see their new TV set when it was unveiled during an open house Friday. The set, donated to them by News Channel 5 in Cleveland, costs hundreds of thousands of dollars, said Tom Wilson, the school's video production teacher, who also assembled the set himself. The monitors were a donation from Best Buy, which agreed to be Channel 11's corporate sponsor for the next two years. North Canton Patch talked to Wilson in 2012 about the gift from News Channel 5 and what it means to Hoover High School. You can find that story here. And now, with the set assembled inside Hoover High, there's no denying just how professional — and cool — it is. "It makes me want to go back to school," …

With Veteran’s Day celebrations being planned throughout the country, North Canton City Schools is producing a documentary, “A Thousand Words: For Those Who Served” to honor veterans this year. Students and staff were invited to write letters expressing their thanks to veterans who have served or who are currently serving the country. Some chose to write a letter addressed to soldiers in general, while others wrote to specific veterans they know, including fathers, grandfathers, uncles, cousins and friends. Six letters were chosen to create the script for the documentary. Each letter is read by the author and helps express many of the sentiments that all of the letters held. As the letters are read, pictures of veterans are …

North Canton City School District's TV11 is now putting together the video, which includes dozens of photos of your favorite veterans
TV production students at Hoover High are hard at work putting together a Veterans Day video that will air on TV11 — a video that will showcase dozens of veterans and active military personnel from the North Canton area. Students wrote letters to veterans — some past, some present, and some veterans the students knew, and some they didn't. And about five of those letters will be read as a part of the 10-12 minute Veterans Day video. "All the ones we've selected tend to have a personal story to it, which is really neat," video productions instructor Tom Wilson said. The reading of those letters will play over top of the photos sent in by community members. Wilson said the school received a great number of photos. In fact, they kept pouring …
