Saturday, April 28th is the National Day of Mourning. Annually the community of Steveston gathers at the Fishermen’s Net Needle Memorial in Garry Point Park to recognize the numerous fishermen who have lost their lives doing their jobs. As the memorial can be seen both on land and from water, it acts as a reminder of safety for today’s fishermen who pass by Garry Point Park.
All are welcome to join the service this Saturday, April 28th at 12:00 pm, in Garry Point Park. For all those attending the service, a reception will be hosted by the Gulf of Georgia Cannery afterward.
