Glitz and glamour, red carpets and flashing lights.
Ironton was transformed into Hollywood for one night to celebrate one of the most anticipated new television shows of the summer.
The CBS sci-fi series, “Extant,” was written by Ironton’s own Mickey Fisher, and judging by Wednesday’s premiere turnout at the Ro-Na, everyone was rooting for the man of the hour.
It really is a thrill to see a TV show piloted by Steven Spielberg written by one of Ironton’s very own sons. But what is even more satisfying is to see an entire community rally around someone they may or may not be personally acquainted with, simply to celebrate the man’s accomplishment.
But that is something the people of Ironton have always been good at — showing support for their community family members, both here and afar.
When one person follows his or her dreams and succeeds, it’s like a success for everyone.
We would like to give a big thank you to the Friends of Ironton, Ironton aLive and everyone who helped organize the red carpet event at the Ro-Na. It was certainly a morale booster for the city and shows that good things are happening in Ironton.
