Edmund Fitzgerald Memorial
On Monday November 10 a
memorial service was held for the Edmund Fitzgerald at the Dossin
Museum in Detroit. This program was only available online
through the webcast, the museum is only open
weekends due to budget cuts.
The program started with a Lamp lighting ceremony held at the anchor of the
"Fitz" located in the yard of the Dossin Museum. The ceremony was
followed by a talk from Capt. Don Erickson who searched for the Fitzgerald
on Lake Superior the night of the loss. The ceremony marked the
28th Anniversary of the loss of the Edmund Fitzgerald on Lake Superior at
approx. 7:00 pm November 10, 1975. Viewers from across the country were able
to submit questions to the
ceremony. Chris Winters
