Pyne Keohane Exclusive Sponsor of Commemorative and Forever Flares to Illuminate Hull Harbor in Annual Festival

July 1, 2016

Join us and the Hull Lifesaving Museum for the 2016 Hull Harbor Illumination Festival July 30 in the spectacular tradition of communal celebration and personal remembrance. A thousand flares will illuminate the picturesque crescent of Hull Harbor transfiguring the shoreline into a glowing tribute to loved ones.

Remember, celebrate and honor

forever flareThis moving annual event begins with a memorial service at Hull Cemetery honoring the heroism of MA Humane Society volunteers, U.S. Lifesaving Servicemen, and the Coast Guard at 2:00 pm. The Illumination Festival begins at 3:00 pm at L-Street Field with live music, kids’ activities, food vendors and fine artisans. Gather at dusk at the shoreline of Hull Bay for a colorful Parade of Boats followed by the awe-inspiring illumination of commemorative flares. Additionally, in celebration of Boston Light’s 300th anniversary, the Hull facing shores of Little Brewster will also be lit with flares this year.

Light Up the Night

Each year the public is invited to sponsor a flare for the Harbor Illumination. The flares help to Remember, Honor, and Celebrate – for some it’s to honor a beloved family member, for others to mark a special event in their lives and for some merely to be a part of this marvelous celebration. Sponsor a flare for only $10 each.

This year the festival has added the Forever Flare, a special level of participation.  A onetime donation of $300 allows the donor to commemorate someone special in his or her life with a flare that will be lit at each succeeding Illumination celebration. The flare will be placed in a special holder inscribed with the donor’s memorial name and a commemorative plaque will be permanently displayed at the Hull Lifesaving Museum with the name of the honoree for all to see.

For more information visit the Hull Lifesaving Museum website.

We thank you for the trust you have placed in us and look forward to seeing you on July 30. We hope that this event will serve as a way to honor your memories and your trust.
