This post is to announce the Station Niagara Loss of Crewmen Memorial Design Contest.
This contest is being sponsored by Eastern Great Lakes CPOA.

Back ground info: On March 24, 2001 Station Niagara lost 2 of their crew in an unfortunate accident. Due to this accident and loss of life, changes were put in place that changed the small boat community forever. I will post articles and the "Final Action Message" that tells the story and how it changed the way the Coast Guard does business.

A Memorial was erected back in March 2011 and Officially Commemorated in a Ceremony on 23 March 2011, but a couple years back a storm and rising water levels in lake Ontario has destroyed it and made it necessary to move the location of the memorial. I have attached pictures of the old Memorial and Pictures of the new location.

The Eastern Great Lakes Chapter of the CPOA is sponsoring a Design the Memorial contest. We have a lot of talented people out there that could come up with a great design, this is to include all members in the Sector Buffalo AOR (A-Bay to Lorain). The winning design will receive a $200.00 gift card and have their name on the memorial as "designed by".

Now the good stuff-
Details for the design: We have the Bell and both of the plaques that you see in pictures: Memorial 1 & 2. The size of the New Location you have to work with in the pictures is 18'W x 38'.
Please have all designed submitted by 01 July 2020.
Please help us memorialize this event that changed the Coast Guard.
If you have any questions on the location and items do not hesitate to contact Herb Gierschke
Submissions can be E-mailed to [email protected]

Reminder- no meeting this month to comply with the social distancing rules. Business is being conducted electronically. Motions and votes are made via e-mails. Please feel free to message any questions.

Western New York Heros is looking for volunteers for a food drive. Its at there location. Food is supposed to be there at 10 this Saturday.
Chiefs are the very backbone of the Coast Guard. It has been my privilege to serve with some of the finest Chiefs the USCG has and many of my crewmates have risen to the rank since I retired. This is an elite group that deserves our thanks, our support and our prayers.
One of the many bases I grew up at.
