for lighthouse owners, friends, & stake holders.

at the Custom House Maritime Museum, 150 Bank Street, New London, CT, 06320, 860-443-7000.
hosted by New London Maritime Society
This end-of-season gathering provides an opportunity for lighthouse stakeholders to catch up on lighthouse news along Long Island Sound and to share best practices and resources.  
One goal is to begin planning for 2020 -- either choosing a shared date for activities at individual lighthouses, or developing a singe cooperative event (along the lines of the 'Lighthouse Challenge of New Jersey' or 'Maine Lighthouse Day') to bring attention to LIS lighthouses .
The USCG Aid to Navigation team will update everyone on projected changes to lenses and fog horn technologies. 
The meeting will include presentations from  
  • USCG LIS ANT (Aid to Navigation Team);
  • Ted Webb, who recently secured a $1.5m federal grant for Plum Island Light;  
  • Bob Muller, author and head of the USLHS Long Island Chapter;  
  • and special guest,Randy Polumbo, the owner of Orient Point Light.

Please pre-register online at brownpapertickets.com/event/4432053
A $20 fee covers refreshments & lunch.
