The Hull Lifesaving Museum is proud to honor Hull hometown hero General Richard Neal. The Greater Love Gala celebrates the humanitarian efforts of Hull's lifesavers, and honors exceptional individuals who carry forward that spirit today.
General Neal's career of service, courage and leadership exemplifies the ethic of Joshua James and his intrepid crews, and embodies the values that the Hull Lifesaving Museum strives to impart to youth in our education programs.

Remembering, Honoring, Celebrating
This annual spectacular Hull Tradition of collective celebration and personal remembrance begins with a memorial service at Hull Cemetery commemorating the heroism of MA Humane Society volunteers, U.S. Lifesaving Servicemen, and the Coast Guard. At dusk we gather at the shoreline of Hull Bay for a colorful Parade of Boats followed by the awe-inspiring Illumination of 1,000 flares.
Presented in Partnership With
USCG Cutter James Commissioned in Boston - August 2015
The JAMES, is named for Hull's own legendary lifesaver Joshua James. James is credited with saving more than 540 lives from shipwrecks during his 60 year career as both a Massachusetts Humane Society volunteer lifesaver and the first Keeper of the historic Point Allerton US Lifesaving Station, now the Hull Lifesaving Museum.
This impressive new cutter, the fifth of eight Legend Class National Security Cutters is the most technologically advanced cutters in the Coast Guard fleet. They are designed to perform a variety of missions and operations at sea including: national defense, port security, alien migrant interdiction, maritime law enforcement, environmental defense, search and rescue, and drug interdiction.
Rear Admiral John Korn, Assistant Commandant for Acquisitions said of USCGC James, "It seems only fitting for a cutter that will protect the lives of millions of Americans to bear the name James." The USCGC James was christened on August 16, 2014 at Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula, Mississippi and will commissioned August 8 in Boston.
