First Congregational UCC worked with Fox 47 to produce a television commercial that will be played on a new program called “Our Lives.” Our Lives is already the name of a magazine about gay and lesbian people and lifestyles in the Madison area.  There have been stories about Eldonna Hazen, Jeanne Marshall and her AIDS bike ride fund-raising experiences, and our members Josh Feyen and Jay Edgar were even on the front cover and the subjects of a featured article. Fox 47 has teamed up with Editor Patrick Farabaugh to produce a half-hour television show based on the kinds of stories that the magazine already carries. Representative Tammy Baldwin will be interviewed in one of the episodes.
