The Society is pleased to announce that the 2018 calendar has gone to the printer. Some of you wanted to see the photos that will be featured. Here are the cover and monthly images (hover your mouse over the image to see caption with photographer’s name):
The printer asked that we add four additional pages to the calendar, so we are delighted that we were able to include 12 honorable mentions:
Congratulations to all our Society photographers for making this calendar a stunning reminder of how much we love lighthouses!
You can purchase your calendar through the Society’s Keeper’s Locker.
