The St. Peters Harbour Lighthouse was officially illuminated on July 7th, 2019 at approximately 9;30 p.m.
A gathering of about 30 called out multiple Hip! Hip! Hoorays! when the light was turned on!
Check out these photos of the Lighthouse when lit and the wonderful crowd cheering the event. Thanks go out to Bill Morton for an exceptional job at making this happen!
On the photo below, you can see from the glow of the beacon, ( as well as Bill Morton's face ) , that the illumination of the lighthouse is now complete !!!
So as advertised earlier this spring, this bulletin is to confirm a casual beach gathering for SPHLS members and their friends to toast the official illumination this Saturday evening (July 6th) at 9:00 pm. Once a suitable crowd and darkness are achieved, Bill will throw the switch, probably around 9:30 pm.
Things are supposed to warm up by then, but as it is always cooler by the shore, remember to wear warm clothes. And bring a blanket to enjoy the wee bon fire provided. Marshmallows and a few bottles of bubbly will be served to early arrivals.
Remember, walking, biking or car pooling are encouraged to preserve this ecologically sensitive area.
