Quick: Which former church is now a library? By what name was Jermyn originally known? Play along with the Lackawanna Historical Society’s “You Live Here; You Should Know This” local history game show and find out! The gameshow will be played LIVE on Sunday, September 24th at 4:00 PM at the Ritz Theater and Performing Arts Center (222 Wyoming Avenue, Scranton). The program will also be recorded and posted to our YouTube channel at a later date. Winners will receive bragging rights for one year as “Local History Legends of Lore!”
The game show is created by local students from Valley View and Riverside High Schools. Players on eight teams will answer fast-paced Jeopardy-style questions about people, places, and events in Lackawanna County, with special categories posed by celebrity hosts WVIA radio hosts, DNC Treasurer Virginia McGregor, LCVB director Curt Camoni, Happenings Magazine editor Paula Mackarey, and Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce President Bob Durkin. The 2022 winners, Owen Worozbyt, Director of Operations for the Lackawanna Heritage Valley, and Gerard Hetman, Community Development Specialist at NeighborWorks, will return to defend their title. Their worthy challengers will include administrators, faculty, and family members from Riverside School District, Laurie Cadden, Judge Margie Moyle, Rep. Bridget Kosierowski, WNEP anchor Stacey Lange, and more.
Admission is $10 for adults, and $5 for students and can be purchased at the door. There will be no advance ticket sales. For more information about the program, contact the Lackawanna Historical Society at 570-344-3841 or email email@example.com.
