History Fort Lauderdale, on Saturday night at Superyacht Village, hosted its HistoryMakers Reception and honored the importance of the marine industry in South Florida by recognizing a true pioneering family, the Denison family led by Frank and Gertrude Denison, and a legacy business, the Marine Industries Association of South Florida. The City of Fort Lauderdale elected officials presented the Denison’s and MIASF with official proclamations recognizing their critical historical impact that has helped bring Fort Lauderdale to the city it is today. It was an emotional and moving night as the industry came together to honor the legacy of Frank and Gertrude Denison with their entire family, through multiple generations, in attendance. For MIASF, it was a true honor to stand alongside this family as we all remember Frank and Gertrude. You can continue to honor their legacy and the history of the marine industry in South Florida by visiting the permanent exhibit at the History Museum in Fort Lauderdale.
