The afternoon will feature a luncheon at the Golden Age Club, and a memorial service in the afternoon at St. Thomas Aquinas Church.
“We’re having a candlelight vigil for all rescuers, families and survivors,” said Stacey, adding the service will also include a slideshow presentation.
The night wraps up with a social at the US Memorial Hospital.
Stacey said they are expecting a good turn out for the events.
Among those confirmed is Terry Phillips, the son of the late Dr. Lanier Phillips.
Lanier Phillips was the last know survivor of the disaster.
Stacey said that next month’s events is just the first of many being held through 2017.
“The 75th anniversary is not only about that one- week event it is going to be a full year.
“We’ll be having different things like open houses in May, and presentations and storytelling from May to August. This is not just a one week event.”
The committee has received funding from the federal government to help plan events for the whole year.
Mayor Paul Pike laid a wreath on behalf of the town during last year’s ecumenical service in St. Lawrence commemorating the Truxtun and Pollux disaster.
