A lovely, solemn day. Thank you to all who could join us.
Last year our area commemorated the Great Storm of 1913.
For our part we presented a very successful dinner theatre “The White Hurricane”. During the evening we raffled off prints of the ships we featured in the production. Proceeds of the raffle and a generous grant from the Municipality of Bluewater allowed us to erect another historical plaque in St Joseph’s Memorial Park. The plaque faces the spot in the lake where the Wexford lies.
