2017 Veterans Appreciation Day

This year will mark the third Annual Veterans Appreciation Day at Presque Isle State Park in honor of our veterans and active service members. The event will be held at the Rotary Pavilion on Veterans Day. Breakfast is from 8 AM to 9:30 AM, free for veterans and a $5 donation for non-veterans. Proceeds will benefit the items for our troops coordinated by the Presque Isle Partnership. A ceremony will follow from 10 AM to 11 AM including speakers and a ceremonial salute. Tours of the TREC will be provided by Park Naturalists from 1 PM to 2 PM. Also, being provided for veterans is a voucher to see a discounted film on the Big Green Screen, and a 20% discount at Presque Isle Gallery and Gifts at the TREC. In November, the Presque Isle Partnership will be supporting our troops through a collection of donated items, to be sent at a later date. Individuals may drop off donations to the main lobby at the TREC from 10 AM - 6PM daily. Donations will also be accepted in the lobby of the Erie Maritime Museum near the Museum Gift Shop, Monday through Saturday, from 9 AM to 5 PM.

Programming is subject to modification or cancellation at the discretion of park staff.  If you need an accommodation to participate in Park activities due to a disability, please contact Presque Isle State Park at 814-833-7424 to make arrangements for your visit.  With at least three days’ notice, interpreters for people who are deaf or hard of hearing are available for educational programs.  Please call the Erie ASL Interpreters’ Office at (814) 806-2511 for more information about this service.
