The United States Lighthouse Society is a strong supporter of National Lighthouse Day (August 7), an annual commemoration of the anniversary of the federal lighthouse establishment. It is an opportunity to celebrate lighthouses and efforts to preserve both the structures and their history.
To this end, we would like to update our Events page to reflect any National Lighthouse Day celebrations around the country. Please send details of such events to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include a short description of the event and a link for more information.
Thanks for all you do to support and preserve lighthouses!
