Your generosity help us keep Ernest Day and other park programs free of charge.  We also endeavor to advance research and treatment for Parkinson's Disease. 

Ernest co-creator and director John R. "Buster" Cherry III suffered from Parkinson's for many years before finally succumbing to it in 2022.  He was a very funny man and generous friend to Montgomery Bell State Park.  He enjoyed meeting and interacting with Ernest fans at the first several Ernest Day events.  We honor his memory by continuing to support The Parkinson's Foundation

Please consider donating to these worthy organizations as a show of your appreciation for Ernest Day.

Did you know a documentary film about Ernest is currently in production?  It's true!  And they could use your support!  Donate to the production, get updates, and pre-order your copy on their web site!
