I did want to tell you that we have added an additional lighthouse cruise to our schedule, May 31-June 3, 2007. We are very excited to be offering this special Lighthouse fundraiser for the Maine Lighthouse Museum (MLM) and the American Lighthouse Foundation (ALF). So here‚Äôs the shameless pitch: Set sail for 4 days aboard the schooner Mary Day and help raise funds to celebrate the collaboration of the American Lighthouse Foundation and the Maine Lighthouse Museum. This historic merger creates the largest lighthouse museum in the nation, a museum not just about the past but dedicated to preserving the future of these national treasures. Lighthouse historian Ted Panyatoff, the author of a book about the Rockland Breakwater Light, will be aboard to share his wealth of technical knowledge as well as his vast collection of stories about the men and women who created and manned these coastal sentinels, saving lives and allowing commerce to flourish. This will be a time to see lighthouses and share their stories from the decks of an authentic Maine schooner, just as the light keepers would have seen a hundred years ago. A portion of the proceeds from this cruise will be donated to the ALF/MLM to support the important work they are doing. Everyone will receive a complimentary pass to the museum, which is a ‚Äúmust see‚Äù destination while you are here. Help us support the Maine Lighthouse Museum and the American Lighthouse Foundation during this fun filled 4 day sailing cruise on Penobscot Bay.

So pass along the word about this special event if you know anyone that might be interested. In the meantime, have a great day. Be well. Do good.
