A Visit From Flying Santa
Hull Lifesaving Museum
Sunday, December 8, 2019
We are thrilled to be one of Flying Santa's candy cane stops this year. Thanks to the efforts of Friends of Flying Santa, he will be landing his helicopter, joining us for an unforgettable visit, then will be off to deliver gifts to children of USCG families at over 60 Coast Guard units in New England. This annual treat is much more than holiday excitement for the kids, it is a wonderful New England tradition that dates back to 1929.

Remembering, Honoring, Celebrating
Hull's signature summer event is just weeks away!
Join us for a spectacular event as we light the harbor with more than one thousand flares, celebrating Hull's maritime heritage. The evening begins with a Coast Guard City commemoration at Hull Cemetery, followed by a full schedule of music, food and family fun.
Join us at the Lifesaving Museum for music, museum tours and children's activities, or at A Street Pier for a mellow steel drum performance. Then, thanks to our friends at Save the Harbor, Save the Bay, we will welcome back the Boston Circus Guild's amazing Fire Jugglers, just before the main event - the Harbor Illumination! Stay tuned for a full schedule of events!

USCG Cutter James Commissioned in Boston - August 2015
The JAMES, is named for Hull's own legendary lifesaver Joshua James. James is credited with saving more than 540 lives from shipwrecks during his 60 year career as both a Massachusetts Humane Society volunteer lifesaver and the first Keeper of the historic Point Allerton US Lifesaving Station, now the Hull Lifesaving Museum.
This impressive new cutter, the fifth of eight Legend Class National Security Cutters is the most technologically advanced cutters in the Coast Guard fleet. They are designed to perform a variety of missions and operations at sea including: national defense, port security, alien migrant interdiction, maritime law enforcement, environmental defense, search and rescue, and drug interdiction.
Rear Admiral John Korn, Assistant Commandant for Acquisitions said of USCGC James, "It seems only fitting for a cutter that will protect the lives of millions of Americans to bear the name James." The USCGC James was christened on August 16, 2014 at Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula, Mississippi and will commissioned August 8 in Boston.
