Sunset cruise supports lighthouse preservation
The Friends of Rockland Harbor Lights and the American Lighthouse Foundation invite the public to join them Friday, Sept. 14 for a lighthouse sunset cruise featuring five Midcoast guiding lights.
The cruise is an opportunity for participants to enjoy a close-up view of seldom-seen Franklin Island Lighthouse in Muscongus Bay, as well as Two Bush and Whitehead Island lighthouses in Penobscot Bay, and Tenants Harbor and Marshall Point lighthouses in the St. George area.
The funds raised during the lighthouse sunset cruise will help the lighthouse preservation and education mission of the American Lighthouse Foundation and its local chapter, Friends of Rockland Harbor Lights, which cares for Rockland Breakwater and Owls Head lighthouses.
The three-and-a-half-hour sunset cruise will depart Port Clyde (Monhegan Boat Line pier) at 4 p.m. aboard the P/V Elizabeth Ann. Tickets are $35 per person; reservations are recommended. A cash bar, light fare and desserts will be offered onboard. Tickets can be purchased at the American Lighthouse Foundation Gift Store and Interpretative Center, located at 464 Main St. in Rockland, online at www.lighthousefoundation.org or www.rocklandharborlights.org, or by calling 594-4174.
