FINALLY SPRING BASKET SOCIAL - Tentatively Rescheduled to October 18th
LTHS postponed our annual fundraising event "Finally Spring Basket Social" originally scheduled for Sunday, March 29, 2020. Our first priority being the health, safety and security of our members, volunteers and participants who would be attending the event. Depending on the status of COVID-19 restrictions when we get closer to the event, we will hold a FINALLY FALL BASKET SOCIAL. A rescheduled date will be Tentatively Sunday, October 18th and will be held at Blue Mountain Fish & Game Club Hall as previously planned. Thank you for understanding. Updates will be posted here on our website and on our Facebook page.
Stage 2 and Final Stage of sign project now completed (June 2020)
Finally, after many delays including winter weather and COVID-19, our new sign along with landscaping and lighting has been completed! Although the Historical Centre and Museum are not currently open to visitors due to the pandemic, you will be able to come see our sign when you stop by to participate in our upcoming fundraisers: BBQ to GO on Saturday, August 15th starting at noon to 4 pm and our annual Mum Sale scheduled on Saturday, September 12th from 9 am - 2 pm.
We wish to acknowledge the Northampton County for their assistance with funding for this project from the Northampton County Hotel Tax Grant. Our project was titled "What's That Building?" as many people did not know what the building housed.
Additional funding for the landscaping and lighting of the sign came partly from the Lehigh Township Board of Supervisors annual donations along with membership donations from some of LTHS business sponsors: J.T. Lelo Trucking LLC, Point Phillips Hotel, Henry’s Service Station, the Lehigh Township Lions Club and the LTHS general account. We thank Pete from PSA Turf and Irrigation, Inc. of Danielsville for doing a wonderful job on the base around the sign.
Tourists, residents, and visitors will now know that this building is a museum and home to the Lehigh Township Historical Society.
Stage 1 of sign project completed. (September 2019)
What is That Building? is the title of project for our new sign funded primarily by a grant from the Northampton County Hotel Tax Grant for 2019. We still have work to do around the sign itself for it to be completed, but this beautiful sign now identifies clearly what our Historical Centre Museum building is. This sign replaces the one that was the victim of a hit and run in January 2o19. Ironically, we had this grant proposal for a new sign submitted in the summer of 2018, prior to the demise of the other sign it was meant to replace. Stay tuned for the finished product, but a sneak peak is posted here.
