Patti & I attended the press release in Cape Elizabeth where Gov. Baldacci announced Lighthouse Day, Sept. 12, 2009 on which day, the lighthouses along the entire coast of Maine will be open to the public.
I was invited to be on the press release team by Capt. James McPherson, who I met here in Belfast at the Comfort Inn. After discussing timing of the event with Barry, the manager of the Comfort Inn and others, I offered the recommendation that the event be held during the "shoulder" season in the fall and that each community's involvment would be noted.
From the press release: "The event will also be an opportunity for all the communities that are home to each lighthouse to join this celebration of Maine’s lighthouse heritage."
Make sure your community is aware of this exciting opportunity.
