The Friends of Mt. Pisgah State Park would like to invite all veterans, active service men and women, and their families to Patriots in the Park on Saturday, Sept. 12.
Some of the highlights include a Penn York Highlanders performance, the presentations of the Korean Ambassador of Peace award, and two Quilts of Valor. The featured speaker this year is Navy veteran and Canton High School alumnus Dan Shaffer.
Representatives are expected to attend from the offices of Representative Clint Owlett, Representative Tina Pickett, Senator Gene Yaw, and the Bradford County Commissioners.
The Veterans Affairs new mobile unit and the new Bradford County Bookmobile will both be on site. The Bradford County Library system will be there to answer questions and share information about their programming. The Dairy Princess council members will be available to help serve some sweet treats!
The event will be slightly different than previous years to accommodate COVID restrictions, and runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., with the program kicking off at approximately 11:30 a.m. at the Nature Center Pavilion in the park.
Light refreshments and beverages will be available.
The Friends of Mt. Pisgah State Park are a non-profit group that supports the activities of the park. If you are interested in joining the group or would like to work with them to bring new programming to the park, call (570) 297-2734 or find them on Facebook for meeting times.
