When: Mon., Nov. 10, 6-8 p.m. 2014
This moving annual program remembering sailors lost on the Great Lakes will be highlighted by a presentation about the Benjamin Noble, a Detroit-built and owned freighter that was chartered to a Cleveland firm. In the Spring of 1914, she was carrying rails out of Conneaut, Ohio and sank with all hands when she encountered a squall in western Lake Superior. Other highlights include a lantern vigil at the Edmund Fitzgerald anchor to begin 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.
