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.
