The Door County Maritime Museum will be participating in the Blessing of the Fleet event in Baileys Harbor on Saturday, May 21, highlighted by special restoration tours of Cana Island.

“Tours of Cana Island Light Station include admission to the island, a climb up the historic lighthouse tower and a special detailed overview of our current and future restoration projects,” said the museum’s Executive Director Amy Paul. Tour times will be 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. The cost is $15 per person ($5 for members) with pre-registrations being taken by calling the museum at 920-743-5958.

The museum will also maintain a presence at the festival grounds on County Hwy. F near the Baileys Harbor Town Hall. A museum ship model silent action will take place, the pieces having been donated to the museum through the generosity of museum supporters.

The works of a pair of popular Door County artists will also be for sale with all proceeds benefitting the Cana Island restoration project. Maritime works by Kathy Glasnap will be available as well signed prints by Gerhart Miller of a Cana Island work that is exclusively sold by the Door County Maritime Museum.
