Memorial Day Blessing of the Fleet Ceremony
During Harbor's annual Blessing of the Fleet, boats line up just off of Marina Boat to receive a blessing and well wishes for the boating season ahead. The Joplin Fire Department Fire Boat Fleet escorts our preacher who prays over each blessing and boat. Boats pass by a lead boat to receive an actual blessing on board and can send back donations. All proceeds for the day go to the Joplin United Methodist Church Mission Fund. All vessels are invited!
