Today, the office has an unusual sense of quiet… the first day without The 1742 Experience team members.
Eight months ago, when Historic Bethlehem Partnership (HBP) was approached to be a part of this new pilot program, little did we realize how much of an impact this would make on us personally and professionally.
The team rocked our historic worlds. Projects that we planned to take 2 – 3 hours were accomplished in 7 minutes. Seriously, Amy timed it.
Personally, it was exciting for us to remember what it was like to be their age, at the start of one of the most exciting chapters of their lives. It was refreshing for us to share our passion, goals, and challenges.
We hope the students took away a deeper understanding of museums and cultural organizations in communities. Now that the team members are part of the HBP family, we look forward to seeing them at upcoming events and activities in the community. We have no doubt that they will conquer the world.
It was a real pleasure to work with our community’s next leaders, and we cannot wait to see what they do in the future.
