The annual Blessing of the Fleet and Dedication of Names was held May 4, starting at 10 a.m. at the Alaska Commercial Fishermen’s Memorial in downtown Juneau.

The names of Charlie Clements, John Winther Jr., Tom and Dorothy Osborne and Eric McDowell were placed on the memorial this year.

United States Coast Guard Capt. Phil Thorne spoke at the event.

Participating in the Blessing of the Fleet this year was the Alaska Marine Highway System ferry M/V Malaspina, which also had a day of festivities for the AMHS 50th anniversary.

Fishing vessels participating in the Blessing gathered in front of the Fishermen’s Memorial and friends and family laid flowers out in memory.
