Annual Memorial Service

In Memory of Saginaw River sailors
who have lost their lives on the Great Lakes


The service takes place each year on or around November 15 at a location on the Saginaw River. Each name is read a loud; with each name a bell is rung and a fresh carnation dropped to the waters of the river.
