The Port of Bandon, Oregon invite’s you to the annual Blessing of the Fleet at 1 p.m., Saturday, May 25

Loved ones who have been lost at sea and those in the military who gave their lives for the country will be honored. A blessing for those men and women currently serving and veterans who have returned from war or served in any capacity is planned as well. The blessing also will include those who fish the seas and those who make their livings commercial fishing. Port of Bandon General Manager Gina Dearth asks those interested to call the port to include in the service the name of a loved one who died in a water-related accident. continued
