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 now have a Bell of Recognition hanging in the Center with a plaque listing names of contributors or honorees. The money adds to the artifacts, books, and other treasures at the Center. Ask any Maritime Center volunteer about the Bell.
APRIL 18 & 25 (Saturdays): Kids, 12 and younger, can build a model ship at the Maritime Center from noon to 3 p.m. on 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, the book tells you everything about the ships that pass the Maritime Center.
