On August 25, 2016, Fort Monroe National Monument celebrated the centennial of the National Park Service by sponsoring a Norfolk Tides baseball game at Harbor Park in Virginia. Along with Eastern National, partners at the event included Colonial National Historical Park, Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail, Fort Monroe Authority’s Casemate Museum, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Eastern National supported the event with a contribution that enabled Fort Monroe National Monument to provide tickets to the game for all participants and a host of volunteers.
A booth was set up on the concourse to provide information, Junior Ranger stickers, and a one-dayonly/three-parks-in-one Passport To Your National Parks® NPS Centennial cancellation stamp for Fort Monroe National Monument, Colonial National Historical Park, and Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail. EN Colonial National Historical Park Unit Manager Melissa Hawkins was on hand to help sell merchandise and answer questions.
