I am proud to announce that Conner Prairie has named August 4th as First Responders Day. Those who protect our community will receive free admission on this day as a heartfelt gesture to say thanks to all the men and women that serve us and keep us safe. The family of first responders will receive a 50% discount on admission on August 4th.
The day will start with celebratory remarks at 9:30 a.m. followed by the opening of Conner Prairie from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. As part of the celebration, special programming will be held throughout the day. Keep an eye on our website for more details on these activities closer to the event date.
We’re not the only ones excited about this event. Indiana Governor Eric J. Holcomb recently said that “We can’t do enough to thank and recognize Indiana’s first responders for their service to Hoosiers in need. I hope they and their families are able to take advantage of this fun day in their honor.” Thank you Governor Holcomb. We couldn’t agree more.
