06 Jul Trips and 4th of July fun!
It’s been a month now since I packed my bags and moved to Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site. It’s crazy how time flies when you are having fun and doing something you love!
For the past month I have been able to learn more about the park, work on some events and take a few trips with my co-workers around Pennsylvania. Last week we took a mini field trip to Philadelphia where we got to visit the Museum of the American Revolution and Independence National Historical Park. We walked around the city for a little, embracing its beauty and the smell of greasy street food, which by the way, I had my first Philly cheese steak and oh my gosh it was amazing! We also went to Gettysburg for a day and explored the park and town. I appreciated being able to visit different National parks because I was able to mentally take notes on how they did things differently than us and how we can approve our park better by doing those certain things as well.
Besides taking trips, The Hopewell team have been preparing for our Independence celebration that happened on the 4th of July. Fortunately it was a huge success and we had many people attend our 2 o’clock program, where our friends group presented our annual commemoration of the Declaration of Independence. We had Molding and casting demonstrations throughout the day and fun crafts for the kids. Even the local news came out and recorded our programs! So overall we were so grateful for how it turned out.
Our next big event is Meet the Farm Animals Day so keep a lookout for updates and posts of cute sheep pictures!
Till next time!
