Remembering, Honoring, Celebrating

This annual spectacular Hull Tradition of collective celebration and personal remembrance begins with a memorial service at Hull Cemetery commemorating the heroism of MA Humane Society volunteers, U.S. Lifesaving Servicemen, and the Coast Guard. At dusk we gather at the shoreline of Hull Bay for a colorful Parade of Boats followed by the awe-inspiring Illumination of 1,000 flares.

Greater Love Gala
Friday April 7, 2017
Black Rock Country Club

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

On April 7, the Hull Lifesaving Museum proudly honored Mr. Ross Sherbrooke for his extensive philanthropic work, including his dedication to the Humane Society of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

"Greater love hath no man than this;
that man lay down his life for his friends."  
Joshua James Memorial Inscription








Presented in Partnership With


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.
