Detroit -

 A ceremony in Detroit is to pay homage to sailors lost on inland waterways as well as observe the 37th anniversary of the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald.


 The Detroit Historical Society's Dossin  Maritime Group is set to host the ceremony Saturday at the Dossin Great Lakes Museum on Belle Isle.
 
 In addition to the Edmund Fitzgerald, this year's Lost Mariners Remembrance event also is to focus on the Pine Lake, which sank in the Detroit River 100 years ago.
 
The evening's activities are to begin with a lantern vigil at the Edmund Fitzgerald anchor, followed by a performance by Great Lakes balladeer Lee Murdock and a color guard escort of a memorial wreath to the Detroit River for receipt by an honor flotilla of Great Lakes vessels.
