Memorial Day activities in Charleston will focus on the annual Blessing of the Fleet and Memorial Service starting at 10 a.m., May 27 at the Charleston Fisherman's Memorial Garden, near the launch ramp at the Charleston Marina.
The service will honor the local men and women involved in commercial fishing and the fishing industry who have died since 1941. This year, the Charleston community will add six names to the "In Memory of Charleston Fisherman" Plaque: Dennis O. Cutting, Stephen "Stevie" Joseph Brandis II, Carl D. Harrington, Vincent Hensey, Bryan Wayne Stores and Jimmie W. Sugg. In addition, one name will be added to the "In Memory of Fishing Industry" plaque, Bill Chard Sr.
