The 3rd Annual Lighthouse Art Wine Label Competition Fundraiser was held in April 2018. This is winner Ruth Kitchen.

Since Fall of 2016 we have been making changes to the south side of the lighthouse to fulfill a grant from SHPO to make the exterior of the house like it was in 1910 - small storage building moved to side of house, rear sidewalk installed, flowers planted around the house and new wood and wire fencing.
