Sandusky, OH

Social Hour will be from 11:00AM to 11:30AM. 
Brunch will be at 11:30AM to 12:30PM.

We are having Marc Burr as a quest speaker after the brunch.
Marc Burr is the President of the Perry Group, a volunteer non-profit organization working with the National Park Service and the local, national, and international community in support of Perry’s Victory and the International Peace Memorial located in Put-In-Bay , Ohio . The Memorial was constructed in 1913 to honor those who fought in the Battle of Lake Erie on September 10, 1813, which was a turning point in the War of 1812, securing U.S. control of the Great Lakes, forcing a British retreat and leading to the current peaceful border with Canada. The Perry Group’s Bicentennial Committee worked with National Park Service and Tall Ships America along with other local stakeholders this past summer to celebrate the Battle of Lake Erie bicentennial and commemoration of Oliver Hazard Perry's victory over a 12-day celebration.  Tall ships visited Lake Erie ports that included Catawba Island, Port Clinton, Kelleys Island, Middle Bass Island and the Canadian ports of Kingsville, Amherstburg and Windsor and culminated with a fourteen ship re-enactment of the Battle of Lake Erie on September 2, 2013 at the original battle location 12 miles northwest of South Bass Island.  After Marc has finished speaking, D/C Craig Fraser will say a few words in commemoration of our 100 anniversary. 

Registration for Founders Day is now closed.
