Military rides the Miller Ferry for free over Memorial Weekend

OTTAWA COUNTY, OH (Toledo News Now) - The Miller Boat Line is teaming up with Put-in-Bay businesses to make this Memorial Day weekend very special for our Veterans and Active Duty Service Members.

From May 23 through the 25, any Veterans or Active Service Members, with proper identification, can ride the Miller Ferry to and from South Bass Island for free.

Over the Memorial Day weekend, the ferry has partnered with the National Park Service, the Perry Monument and the Put-in-Bay community to hold a salute to the troops event, which includes a gala and parade.

Also over the weekend, the tall ship Niagara will be docked.

Katrina Reed, Communications Manager with the Miller Boat Line, says it's an important gesture to give back to those who served our country.

"Well, I think that they've touched all of our lives in some way, and it's something little that we can do so they can join us for the celebration on the island." said Reed.
