The Cumberland County Historical Society (CCHS) has partnered with the Vineland Historical and Antiquarian Society (VHAS) to announce an exciting new summer event designed to enhance interest in our rich local history. Working with many of the historic organizations within Cumberland County, the two societies have created "A Race through Time," which will be held from July 1 to August 28, 2016. Visitors who register at any of the participating sites will receive passports that must be stamped by at least six different participating organizations. At the end of August, participants will be able to submit those passports and receive a chance ticket for a drawing. (An additional chance ticket is given to visitors who visit all sites). Drawing prizes will include gift certificates to local restaurants and events, local history books, a free ride of the A.J. Meerwald, bicycles, and much more! An extra chance ticket will also be given for evidence (photo) that visitors stopped at least four of the West Jersey Time Traveler Podcast Sites. (A list of podcast sites can be found on the ARTT’s Facebook page.) Along the way, individual sites will offer participants small souvenirs of their visits.
Visitors will have the opportunity to stop everywhere from the Bayshore Center at Bivalve to the Millville Army Airfield Museum. Information about each site's hours of operation and a map will be provided to visitors who apply for passports. Participants will be encouraged to take photographs and post them on-line. If the event proves successful, the societies hope to make it an annual event. For further information, contact either the VHAS (VinelandHistory@gmail.com) or the CCHS (email@example.com).
