The Hull Lifesaving Museum is proud to honor Hull hometown hero General Richard Neal at this year's Greater Love Gala on Friday, April 20th at Black Rock Country Club.

"Greater Love Hath No Man Than This; That a Man Lay Down his Life for his Friends." Joshua James Memorial

The Greater Love Gala celebrates the humanitarian efforts of Hull's lifesavers, and honors exceptional individuals who carry forward that spirit today.

General Neal's career of service, courage and leadership exemplifies the ethic of Joshua James and his intrepid crews, and embodies the values that the Hull Lifesaving Museum strives to impart to youth in our education programs.

The Greater Love Auction benefits the museum's education and preservation programs, including our Home Waters youth program which provides low cost and/or free rowing and maritime education to Boston and South Shore youth.

Highlights of this year's auction will include a tour of Washington, D.C.'s historic monuments personally led by General Neal, a tour of Gurnet Lighthouse and Gurnet Lifesaving Station with Dolly Snow Bicknell, daughter of famed maritime author Edward Rowe Snow, and noted US Lifesaving Service historian Richard Boonisar, and Corporate Rowing Outing at the museum's Boston Rowing Center in vibrant Fort Point Channel.
