Murphy’s Heroes on the Water

Community News


Posted on Thursday, June 23, 2016

PEMBROKE - On June 25, 2016, Murphy’s Heroes on the Water will be hosting a military family appreciation day at the Pembroke Marina.

This is the third event held under the Murphy’s Heroes title, with the first two military family appreciation days being held at Murphy Ford to honour military families stationed at Garrison Petawawa. In both 2014 and 2015, the event hosted over 1,500 military and families with the help of other local businesses.

The goal of this event is to give thanks to the men, women and families who have served our great nation. This military community and these families have given their lives in service to our country, and we want to thank them for their commitment, dedication, and sacrifice.

While the event is free to military and their families (with proof of military identification), this year the event will have tickets available for the general public to purchase at these Sponsorship locations - Murphy Ford, Royal LePage Edmonds & Associates, East Side Mario’s and Moncion Metro.

The event includes live entertainment, rock climbing, bouncy castle, photo booth, food and drinks.
