Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

 

         The Harrisburg Area Riverboat Society, Inc., is a 501-c-3 non-profit community service organization headed by a voluntary board of community leaders that operates the Pride of the Susquehanna Riverboat as a service to the people of the region.  The Riverboat Society’s mission is simple: to serve the people of the Harrisburg Area through increasedtourism, economic development and enhanced education regarding the history and ecology of the Susquehanna River.  Since her construction and launch under the leadership of local businessman Mike Trephan over 23 years ago, the Pride has carried more than a half-million passengers. She's been used for business meetings, private parties, weddings, classic dinner cruises and the ever-popular Murder Mystery Dinner Cruises. More recently the Pride, as the Susquehanna River School, has been used as a floating classroom. 

            The Pride is essentially the “Community’s Boat,” and without public support, we will be unable to continue offering free cruises for wounded veterans, fun cruises for seniors, free non-denominational Sunday Morning cruises, and the Susquehanna River School, a unique floating classroom that teaches children and adults about the history and natural wonders of the Susquehanna River.  These, and many more community-oriented events, are the hallmark of the Society’s mission to serve area residents and visitors.  While we do offer many other events, this public-service facet is our main concern.  Because we are a non-profit organization, only with community support can the Society continue to offer these great cruises and ensure that we can “keep the paddles turning” for future generations.
