ST. SIMONS ISLAND, GA.| The Golden Isles Maritme Club will hold its annual Maritime Day remembrance ceremony at noon Friday on the island’s pier near the lighthouse.


The club holds the ceremony to recognize the ships and merchant mariners who have played important roles in America’s history.

“The Merchant Marine has been a pillar in this country’s foundation. It is a time-honored tradition that recognizes one of the country’s most important industries,” the club said of the remembrance ceremony.

The Brunswick High School Navy Junior ROTC color guard will post the colors, club member Robert Franklin and his wife, Chris, will lay a wreath off the pier, and piper Danny Shepard will play.

The public is welcome to attend the short ceremony.
