BELL OF RECOGNITION: Many have asked how they can contribute to the Great Lakes Maritime Center for themselves, in memory of someone, or as a gift to someone still enjoying the Center. We are pleased to bring to your attention the Bell of Recognition hanging in the Center. Behind it is a plaque listing the names of contributors. The money is used to add to the artifacts, books, and other treasures at the Center. Any of our volunteers at the Maritime Center can give you a form to fill out to make a contribution.
APRIL 11 & 18 & 25 (Saturdays): Kids, 12 and younger, can build a model ship at the Maritime Center from noon to 3 p.m. on April 11, and/or April 18 and/or April 25. The Great Lakes Nautical Society is again sponsoring the event. A fee of $6 is charged for each model built (4 choices). Classes are limited to 40, but a child can participate on any or all of the dates. Each child must be accompanied by an adult. For more information, call the Center at 810-985-4817.
APRIL 18 (Saturday): Roger LeLievre returns to the Maritime Center (51 Water Street) between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. with his 2015 copy of Know Your Ships. He will sell and/or sign copies of the book. If you're a boat watcher, Know Your Ships will tell you everything you need to know when the ships pass the Maritime Center.
