Monument Text:
FISHERMAN'S MEMOIRIAL
The fisherman's memorial monument is dedicated to all those people who sail from the community of eastern passage to make their livelihood from the sea and who also enrich our culture and heritage.

To those who have sailed from our port and lost their lives to the power of the sea. You will always be in our thoughts and prayers.

"Let this memorial stand forever for those brave souls lost at sea we will remember and always cherish the life you shared. It was meant to be."

POEM
A FISHERMAN'S TRIBUTE
Life is meant of joy
in everything they do
from toddler free of fear
to teen and into midlife too

The chosen field to earn their pay
is often by desire
working hard with brain and brawn
they never seem to tire.

When one sets out to challenge the sea
knowing, to at times respect
so he can return to be with family.

For those who lose that challenge
and never come home to be
we know you braved the waters
so others could share from the sea.
