We had a remarkable Maine Open Lighthouse Day, matching last year's overall results, raising more than $1,000 to replenish the reserves we used to complete the BIG PROJECT this year. It's now totally paid for! and we're stashing away the next dollars, quarters, nickels and dimes for the next project. More important to us is that more than 400 people had an opportunity to tour our lighthouse, meet our volunteer docents, and experience what life was like for the two keepers who tended the light and fog signal. We have a new photo album for the day, started by one of our visitors, Mark Ruppert -- many thanks, Mark and great shots! Support from all of you is so important to keep the light shining... well, yeah, the Coast Guard will do that, we just take care of what houses the light 🙂 Every like and every comment fuels us! ...
