To the editor:
Most of us have read about the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. To commemorate that fateful day, a ship including family members of those who were lost traveled to the exact spot where the Titanic struck the iceberg. On the same day and hour of impact 100 years before, Reverend Robert Lawrence, the chaplain aboard the ship, conducted a memorial service.

During this trip Reverend Lawrence spoke to family members of the victims as well as others who we’re deeply affected by the tragedy. It was an emotional experience and we are fortunate that Reverend Lawrence will share his experience with us at the Marine Museum on Tuesday, Sept. 18 at 7 o’clock.

Please join us. Call 508-674-3533 for reservations. The charge will be $6 for non-members of the Marine Museum but will be waived if you join that evening.  Members are admitted free of charge with their Membership cards.Seating is limited.
