Join Heroes on the Water and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation as we celebrate our 3rd annual Veterans on the Susquehanna event.

Simple freedoms like exploring, paddling, and experiencing the great land and waterscapes of our country, were made possible by the sacrifices made by our veterans. Just as enjoying waterways like the mighty Susquehanna River is one of the many privileges protected by our veterans, the river itself can provide be a therapeutic, healing experience for those who gave so much.

To honor these heroes and celebrate the value of clean waterways in our community, we invite you to join Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF), Heroes on the Water, and local Trout Unlimited chapters for a day of fishing, paddling, and fly-fishing lessons on the Susquehanna River.

Veterans, community members, paddlers, fishermen, friends, and family are welcome at Shank’s Mare Outfitters from 1 to 5 p.m., to discover and appreciate the Susquehanna.

From 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., CBF will host a dinner and open bar with live music for all participants. There is a $5 entrance fee for dinner and drinks. Beer provided by Tröegs Brewery.

Join CBF and Heroes on the Water in saluting our veterans, enjoying some river therapy, a good time on the water, and new opportunities to protect clean water in your community. The Wawa Foundation supports our celebration of "Everyday Heroes."

It’s an opportunity to celebrate our heroes and appreciate the value of clean water!

Registration will open July 20, 2017
