ST. GEORGE (AP) – A new fishermen’s memorial has been dedicated in Port Clyde.

Fundraising for the St. George Fishermen’s Memorial began a couple of years ago, after fisherman Gary Thorbjornson was lost at sea when the fishing boat Sirius sank.

The granite memorial is mounted on a compass rose at the Marshall Point Lighthouse. It honors 11 local men including Thorbjornson who’ve died at sea since 1941.

Volunteers raised money to create it through raffles, suppers and auctions. More than 100 people attended Saturday’s dedication.
