For the 43rd consecutive year, the Great Lakes Memorial Service and Blessing of the Fleet will be held in Mariners' Church of Detroit on Sunday, March 11, 2007 at 11:00 AM.
Everyone is invited to bring Burgees, Colors, Pennants, and Pennons for presentation and blessing at the Altar. Have a card, with your name and organization clearly printed, and hand it to the Captain who will make the announcement. Please plan to retrieve your flag immediately following the end of the service.
There will also be the Presentation of the Captain Lewis Ludington Awards to International Shipmasters' Association members, chosen by the Detroit Lodge of the International Shipmasters' Association.
Parking is available in the Ford Underground Garage. The entrance to the garage is in the median strip of Jefferson at Woodward Ave. Passes for free parking are available at the church, and can be given to the attendant as you leave the garage. The most convenient pedestrian exit from the garage is the southeast door leading directly to entrance on the tunnel side of the Church
