Detroit Historical Society says
This annual program remembering lost mariners of the Great Lakes will feature renowned marine artist Robert McGreevy telling the story of the brave lifesaving crews who patrolled the Great Lakes. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the United States Coast Guard, formed from combined units of the U.S. Revenue Cutter Service and the U.S. Life-Saving Service. A lantern vigil at the Edmund Fitzgerald anchor begins the night, followed by a performance by Lee Murdock, Great Lakes balladeer, and an Honor Guard escort of the memorial wreath to the Detroit River for receipt by the Honor Flotilla of Great Lakes vessels.

Admission is $5 for members, $10 for guests, and $25 for families of up to six. Seating is limited, and advance registration is strongly recommended, as this event regularly sells out. Tickets will be available through Monday, November 9, or until the event is filled. Please call 313.833.1801 for more information.

Special thanks to the Canadian Shipowners Association and the Lake Carriers’ Association for co-sponsoring this event.
