Eversource Helps TRHP Passengers Plug In

Eversource Energy has awarded the Park a Community Impact Grant in support of our Historic Boat Tours. The $2,330.00 grant will underwrite the purchase of 24 individual listening devices or “whispers” and two interpreter transmitters. Passengers wear the whispers on a lanyard which include a one-time use ear bud allowing them to clearly hear the historic tour interpreter who wears a similar transmitting device. “The use of these devices eliminates the need for the boat captain to continually slow the boat in order for the interpreter to be heard over the engine noise and drastically improves the customer experience,  said TRHP Executive Director Amy Perry. “With 60 scheduled tours this year, this is a significant step forward for the Parks Boat Tour operation, she added.
