The Caledonia bagpipers were on the Central Wharf Monday for the official reception to the harbor for LCS-9, with the name "Little Rock" just barely visible on the stern.

Although tickets to the December 16 commissioning ceremony for the new USS Little Rock in Buffalo are all taken, there are still opportunities to get a close view of the Navy's new vessel at Canalside. But be ready to undergo security screening if you visit Canalside in the days leading up to the big event.
