This Is National Lighthouse Day!


On August 7, 1789, through an Act of Congress, the Federal Government took over responsibility for building and operating our nation's lighthouses. The government recognized the importance to ships at sea to find safe harbor during fog and storms. Over the years, lighthouses have saved many ships, and an untold  number of lives.They provide a beacon of light that symbolizes safety and security for boats at sea.

Now Lets P-A-R-T-Y!
