April 2013 Club Meeting Speaker Print


At the Tuesday, April 16, 2013 Bluffton Lions club meeting a power point presentation about the Titanic Memorial Cruise

was give by Lion Micheal Gibbs from the Rushsylvania. Gibbs said yesterday, April 15, 101 years ago, the British ship

“Titanic sank. The world’s most luxurious, and largest ocean liner- nearly three football fields long…was believed to be

“unsinkable”. But an iceberg intervened, and down it went. Many people died, more than 1,500.

Gibbs noted, it’s one historical event that almost all Americans & Brits have at least head of, if only through a fifteen-

year-old-smash-hit movie. Last year I joined a friend to experience the voyage of that “ship of doom” which was

commemorated by the “Titanic Memorial Cruise”, which retraced the original route. Lots of people wore period dress

and for me it was the voyage of a lifetime. He added that it was sobering moment when special wreaths were put in

the ocean directly over the Titanic. Gibbs share stories about people who survived and those who did not…he also noted

that there were some relative of individuals who were passengers on the Titanic. A very interesting presentation.
