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.

This program is SOLD OUT. Any released tickets will be available on a first come, first served basis the night of November 10 at the Dossin Great Lakes Museum. Doors to the museum will open at 5:30 p.m., with limited seating available for the simulcast. As always, there is no charge if you wish to view only the outdoor portion of the program, the Memorial Wreath Ceremony, which starts just after 7:00 p.m. and will include an Honor Guard and movements of the Honor Flotilla on the Detroit River.
