The Blessing of the Fleet ceremony is an age-old tradition typically held when boats are preparing for the opening of the season. Local watermen will bring their boats to the harbor, and local clergy will gather together with the watermen’s community to pray for a blessing of safety and prosperity for the new season, and for all those who pass through the waters of the Bay Hundred region. This year our community is inviting all women who have worked on the water or in the seafood industry to join us for a special time of recognition for their contribution to the industry. Join us at Dogwood Harbor on April2, 2023 at 3:00PM to meet those who work so hard to bring you the best seafood the Chesapeake Bay has to offer. This event is a Community Outreach of St. John’s Chapel partnering with At the Cross Ministries, Talbot Watermen’s Association, Tilghman Fire Dept, Tilghman Watermen’s Museum, and the TIVFD Ladies Auxiliary.
