Vicki Keith - Plaques and Poem

Initially three plaques commemorated Vicki Keith's epic, 46 hour 55 minute, crossing of Lake Huron; however, by 2022 the poetic tribute at Goderich had disappeared..

A fourth plaque at Vicki Keith Point (Leslie Street Spit on Lake Ontario) commemorates Vicki's swimming achievements and efforts to support the activities of disabled children.

One plaque is located in Harbor Beach, Michigan. It stands at the foot of Trescott Street Pier on the beach where Vicki started her swim.
The second plaque is located in Goderich, Ontario. It is found adjacent to the boardwalk at the beach where Vicki landed at the end of her swim.
A further plaque was located in Goderich and carried a poem dedicated to Vicki's Lake Huron crossing and the crossing of the other four Great Lakes that she completed in the same year, 1988.
