Before every scene, every day of shooting, dozens of times, Jim, the director of Season 1 of Home Town, would call out "We have the power to do this!" to let everyone on set know we literally have electricity, it's time to get quiet on set, it's almost time to film. It came to be an especially endearing moment in the shooting day so Erin and Ben made these prints as gifts to the film crew at the wrap party of season 1. On set it meant shooting could begin but as our sweet, small town rallied behind this amazing comeback story, the saying has taken on a whole new meaning. We do have the power to do this - this amazing, important work of bringing back America's hometowns.
