Centennial Video Graphic

We’re excited to announce that the Franke Tobey Jones Centennial Video is now available for everyone to see on the FJT website and on YouTube. You can find it here:

This 43-minute video is a historical look at Franke Tobey Jones in which much of the text for the script was taken directly from board meeting minutes, building dedication speeches, news articles and many other historical documents from 1921 to present time.

It debuted at the FTJ Legacy Circle Luncheon on June 12th,  last Wednesday, then shown on June 14th to the residents who participated in the video before it was released publicly on June 17th.  During the next few weeks we will be showing the video in many of the buildings on campus.

We’d like to thank the eleven residents and two team members who voiced the various parts:

  • Virginia Mason – Visionary and Leader: Nancy Cook
  • Miller – Chair of the Circles Cabinet: Phyllis Gill
  • Tobey Jones: Claire Griffin
  • Old Sea Captain: Dick Griffin
  • William Miller – FTJ Board Chair: Shelley Shellabarger
  • Frank Neal– Served the FTJ Board for 45 years:   Redmond Barnett
  • Mary Damonte: Herself
  • Phil Phibbs: Jerry Winkle
  • Franklin Thompson President, UPS: Jack Falskow
  • Jim Wicks: Roy Kimbel
  • WWII Resident: Doris Renna
  • Michelle Olafson: Herself (team member)
  • Narrator:  Chris Hall (team member)

We’d also like to give a big shout out and thank you to Brett Wayne (Brett Wayne Photography) for doing such a wonderful job putting the video together.

We hope you enjoy it!
