Meet the Commission

Comprised of nearly 90 of Erie’s greatest visionaries and luminaries selected from all segments of the community and operating under the auspices of the Jefferson Educational Society, the Perry 200 Commemoration Commission volunteered its time and expertise in honor of the city that gave birth to Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry’s flagship and fleet. While Perry said, “We have met the enemy, and they are ours,” the Perry 200 Commission’s mission rests on the saying, “We have seen the future, and it is ours.” United in that mission, the Perry 200 Commemoration Commission introduced the product of its labors in On April 26, 2011: The Perry 200 Commemoration.
