Gales of November Shipwreck Series: Tuesday, November 11, 6:30pm

The busy Lake Michigan harbors between Pentwater and Holland, Michigan, has been home to hundreds of passenger and cargo ships since the early 1800s. Inevitably, many of these vessels ended up on the bottom of the lake after storms, collisions, fires and explosions. Often the brave men of the U. S. Life-Saving Service and later the U.S. Coast Guard ventured out to assist when no others would.  Author and speaker Craig Rich tells the tales of these “ships gone missing” like no one else, with a full multi-media presentation utilizing amazing images, narrative and music.
