FW: Help us spread the word on Veterans Day activities

Dear State Commanders and Veteran Supporters,

Veterans Day 2017 is Saturday, November 11th. There are always many activities planned!  This year, we could use your help in making a list of those activities so we may assist in getting the word out to veterans and their families who want to participate.

If you would let us know what your organization is planning to do, it would be very helpful. Give us the date, location, time and contact information. We will make sure we post those activities on our website and let everyone know through our communications, including our NDVS Newsletter about the upcoming events.

All you have to do is hit “REPLY” on this email or email me at hendryt@veterans.nv.gov or call at 775-771-2800.

Thank you very much for being a part of this partnership in serving veterans.

Respectfully,

Terri Hendry

National Park Pass $$$

Hurry! National Park Senior Pass price on the rise

July 10, 2017 Emily Woodbury

If you don’t already have your $10 Senior Pass from the National Park Service make sure to get it before the new price increase on August 28, when the price will jump from $10 to $80. Since 1994, the pass has been an incredible bargain for U.S. citizens and permanent residents 62 and older.

The hike comes as a requirement set by legislation passed by Congress in December 2016. Pass holders are given lifetime access to more than 2,000 sites and parks. The fee increase will support critical investments in maintenance projects at national parks and federal recreational lands nationwide. The legislation also introduces a new annual Senior Pass that can be purchased for $20. Seniors who purchase annual Senior Passes for four years can trade them in for a lifetime Senior Pass at no additional charge.

THE SENIOR PASS can be used at sites managed by the National Park Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Bureau of Land Management, the Bureau of Reclamation, the U.S. Forest Service, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Funds from passes are used to enhance the visitor experience and support priority projects and programs.

The pass can be purchased for $10 before August 28 at a national park or other Federal recreation area that charges an entrance or standard amenity (day use) fee. The pass can also be obtained by mail or online, for $10 before August 28 but there will be an additional $10 charge for processing, for a total of $20. Due to expected high order volume, there could be delays with online and mail order processing of up to several months.

The Senior Pass covers all entrance fees and standard amenity (day use) fees and may provide senior discounts for things such as tours or campsites. The pass also waives the entrance fee for traveling companions. At per-vehicle fee sites, the pass admits the pass holder and all passengers in a noncommercial vehicle. At a per-person fee site, the pass admits the pass holder and three other adults. Children under 16 are always admitted free.



If you are a disabled veteran, you are entitled to a free National Park Pass.
