The first-ever Marie Commemoration honored the men, events, community, and technology surrounding the seven men who set out at sunrise, 7 a.m., on Tuesday, June 7, 1960 aboard the vessel, Marie from Santa Barbara Harbor and the ensuing search and rescue effort that occurred as a result of the Marieís failure to return.  Included in the activities were a Fri Social, Sat Ceremony and Reception, a Sun sunrise wreath laying ceremony at sea, and a  multi-media exhibit displayed June 7-21 at the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum - providing days in 2010 to somewhat mirror the days fifty years ago in 1960.  The  purpose of the Commemoration was not to solve or resolve the mystery but to REMEMBER the event and HONOR the men, their families and those with an interest in the local and national community after fifty years.
