Memorial to those Lost at Sea Dedicated in Lubec

“Nobody wants these men to be forgotten,” Tinker said. Then, in February, 2014, Bar Harbor Bank and Trust presented the Association with a challenge. The bank would donate $10,000 toward the memorial if the Association raised $20,000. The community met that goal in less than five months. Site preparation work began in July. Materials and labor for site landscaping were donated by several local companies. Salisbury oversaw installation of the sculpture in early August. At the August 21 ceremony, the names of those lost over the years were read aloud while Tinker rang a bell as each name was spoken. The Association also is creating a database that will allow people to find information about each man through referencing his name. It’s part of the Association’s effort to ensure this aspect of the community’s history is not lost. “Nobody wants these men to be forgotten,” Tinker said.
