Gloucester Fishermen’s Memorial Service

The annual Fishermen’s Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, August 27, 2016 at 5:00 PM . This Service is to remember and honor all of those who have lost their lives in the long history of Gloucester’s fishing industry. The Service starts with a procession from the American Legion, down Middle Street and onto Stacy Boulevard. Everyone is invited to join the procession. It is led by a line of drummers and many of those walking carry flowers to toss into the sea at the end of the ceremony to remember loved ones or hold boat oars carrying the names of Gloucester fishing boats, past and present. Please join the Fishermen’s Memorial Service Committee in remembering those who lost their lives fishing from America’s oldest seaport.
