FAME is sailing to Gloucester for the Schooner Festival! The Gloucester Schooner Festival celebrates the contribution of the fishing schooner to the history of Gloucester and of New England. On Sunday, September 1 they will form up for a Parade of Sail and then head out to compete in the Mayor's Race for the Esperanto Cup, a trophy from the first International Fishermen's Races sailed in 1920. Join us on the Schooner FAME as we depart from Salem for a 5-hour adventure. We will join the other schooners and tall ships in Gloucester and sail out with them before returning to Salem in the afternoon.

This Day in History
On August 30, 1967, Thurgood Marshall becomes the first African American to be confirmed as a Supreme Court justice. He would remain on the Supreme Court for 24 years before retiring for health reasons, leaving a legacy of upholding the rights of the individual as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.
I hope to see you here!
