Pebble in a Pond is a documentary about the Charlotte Folk Society. This program debuted on WTVI on November 22, 2010 and has aired many times since.
Marilyn Meacham Price truly tossed a "pebble in a pond" when she founded the Charlotte Folk (Music) Society in 1982, and the ripples continue ever outward. Supported and nurtured by a succession of volunteers, the organization has not only achieved its mission, but also created a very special community in the process.
