To the Editor:
The Blessing of the Fleet was a huge success because of the hard work of many Hull hands, but a special thank-you goes out to the lobstermen led by Peter Mahoney, who took two dozen veterans and their families out to view the procession. They did this despite being sidelined for weeks due to the Right whale migration. Instead of heading out to catch up on their losses, they chose to honor our country’s finest. Kudos to them and their generosity.
Also, a big thanks to the Salt Water Club’s crew who fed the vets burgers, dogs, Angel’s clam chowder and Larry’s award-winning chili (even Morell’s BBQ crews were impressed).
