Giving Back To Our Military Members

Throughout each sailing season for the past 32 years, the Harrisburg Area Riverboat Society has honored our Veterans and Active Military Personnel by providing the following free programs; 45-minute public cruises, attendance at our River School, and a dinner cruise to celebrate Memorial Day.

To continue these programs and to support the Riverboats’ overall operations we have established a virtual “Wall of Honor” to thank those who have served and have sacrificed their lives for our country. Please join the Harrisburg Area Riverboat Society (HARS) in recognizing those military personnel by donating to the Riverboat.

In addition, with your donation please include a small biography and attach a photo of the veteran to honor them virtually on The Pride of the Susquehanna’s website. Please complete the attached form and either email info@harrisburgriverboat or mail it to the above address.

We plan to recognize each service member posted on our virtual “Wall of Honor” at our next Veterans event during the 2021 Sailing Season.

All donations are tax-deductible; The Harrisburg Area Riverboat Society is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization.

Tax Identification Number: 23-2366322

Paying Tribute To All Veterans And Active Military Personnel

The Harrisburg Area Riverboat Society is proud to support veteran activities and to give back to those who have already given so much to our communities and nation.

Part of our mission is to serve those who serve us, and for over 20 years we have hosted veterans from various area VA Hospitals to come ride the Pride on special cruises.

As a celebration of our 32nd Anniversary Season in 2020, we are further committed to giving back to these great men and women by offering free 45 minute Public Sightseeing Cruises to all veterans.

Active duty, military, and veterans can ride and bring one (1) guest to ride the Pride as well, free of cost.

Public cruises leave City Island every weekday at 12 noon, 1:30 PM, and 3 PM.

Additionally, veterans can ride our River School events every Saturday morning at 10 AM (June – August) for free! Simply call our office at (717) 234-6500 and we’ll waive the costs for yourself and a guest!
