The annual Fishermen’s Memorial Service was held this weekend. This Service is to pay homage to and in remembrance of those who never returned to their hailing port from their final trip. A procession is lead by a line of drummers and Sea Cadets and many of those walking carry flowers to toss into the sea at the end of the ceremony as a remembrance of loved ones. Others carry boat oars with the names of #Gloucester fishing boats, past and present. I thank the Fishermen's Memorial Service Committee for their efforts to make this ceremony so meaningful.
