On Episode 66 of No Rain Date, we’re joined by Megan van Ravenswaay, Executive Director of the Northampton County Historical & Genealogical Society, to talk about the society’s role in preserving local history, the Sigal Museum in Easton (which is part of NCHGS) and Lehigh Valley Passport to History. Passport to History is a partnership of more than 40 historic sites in and around the Lehigh Valley. All this month, member sites are participating in Lehigh Valley Passport to History Month by hosting special weekend events, with most sites open free of charge (check out the complete schedule of events here). Megan also discusses how COVID-19 has impacted the NCHGS and other local historical societies, as well as how they are working together to broaden the appeal of history from something traditional that “lives on a shelf” to interactive educational experiences that can be enjoyed all ages. As a special incentive for No Rain Date listeners to visit the Sigal Museum, Megan also shares an exclusive CODE you can use to receive free admission to the museum in August. As always, Josh has a news roundup featuring highlights from some of the week’s biggest stories, in case you missed them.
