What a great day!!!

A little more than a year ago Roberta Murray-Hirst, Henry Haiduk and several members of the NLPS met with Jennifer Huycke Christie to expore the possibilities of running a Ski Day as a fundraiser for the Lighthouse. For many years Jennifer has been running a very successful Ski Day for the hospital. We thank her for her encouragement, her advice, and her enthusiasm. From that meeting and with a lot of hard work, our very successful Lighthouse Winterfest took place yesterday at Devil's Glen. Thanks Jennifer. Your input was invaluable. It lit our way! ...
