New Bedford elected officials will join with the general public on Thursday in marking the Centenial Celebration of the New Bedford Whaleman’s Statue.

A ceremony is planned for 11am at the statue, outside the Downtown Library. The statue was originally dedicated by Mayor Charles Ashley on June 20, 1913.

The 100 year old symbol has served as a proud tribute to the whalers who made New Bedford the world’s most famous whaling port in the nineteenth century.

A spokesman for the Mayor says at the end of the ceremony, city officials will unveil a “concept plan” for the New Bedford’s Fishermen’s Tribute Plaza. The ceremony is open to the public
