            In accordance with House Rule 519 and Joint Rule 213, the following items:

 

Recognizing:

 

            (5-1)  the mast dedication and flag raising ceremony for the six 120-foot tall "masts" representing the masts of the schooner Wyoming, built in 1909 and one of the largest wooden sailing ships ever built in North America, at the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath.  The present Wyoming evocation, the largest outdoor sculpture in New England, is composed of 2 structures, which are replicas of the original ship's bow and stern, spanning almost 450 feet of the Maine Maritime Museum's riverfront campus.  The bow structure is almost 6 stories high and the stern is almost 4 stories high.  The installation of the 6 masts is meant to evoke the size and scale of the original ship.  In the 50th anniversary year of the Maine Maritime Museum, we join the good citizens of Bath in celebrating this special event honoring the strong seafaring heritage of the State;
