Protocol for Entering the Prison
Before entering Eastern all guests will pass through a security checkpoint similar to that at any airport – you must present a valid photo ID. All electronic devices, including cell phones and cameras, are strictly prohibited. Please minimize what you bring inside – handbags, briefcases, and accessories should be left in the car. Dress is business casual. Guests are asked to arrive by 10:00 a.m. to allow time for security processing. The ceremony will end at approximately 1:00 p.m. You are welcome to join us for lunch after the ceremony or leave at that point. The event will end at approximately 3:00 p.m.
If you are using your GPS, the address is 30 Institution Rd, Napanoch, NY 12458
