Port Dover Harbour Museum is hosting the Fishermen’s Memorial and Blessing of the Nets service on Saturday, May 12 at 2:00 PM in the Riverfront Park.
Blessing of the nets ceremonies have traditional roots, and take place in communities around the globe. The Port Dover service will honour fishermen from this community who have lost their lives on the lake.
The service will start with a traditional Indigenous smudging ceremony.
All are welcome, and encouraged, to attend this free community service. The service will take place in the Riverfront Park – rain or shine. Please bring a chair for outdoor seating.
