The Flagship Niagara League Receives $10,000 Grant

Erie, PA- The Flagship Niagara League received a grant from The Erie Community Foundation on April 8.

This grant will be used in phase one of the Erie Maritime Museum “Face Lift” project.

Over the next 24 months, the Museum and Gift Shop will have brand new carpet and flooring throughout the complex.

Shawn Waskiewicz, Executive Director, said, “The Museum is aging and not much has been done since opening in 1998.  It’s now time to pay more attention to improve the overall look while marketing to attract more visitors.”
