Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor:

We have had an amazing summer so far at Huntington Lighthouse. Thanks to your generous support, progress has been made on the critical repair work. However, after much deliberation and many logistical calculations, we were left with no choice but to cancel the 2017 Musicfest.

The restoration process that began last fall has made great strides and she’s looking good! Along the way, we have discovered unpredicted work on the fourth side that must be completed to help make the lighthouse foundation structurally sound again. This was not unexpected with a job of this magnitude, but is beyond the original scope of work.

These additional repairs will prohibit holding the 2017 Lighthouse Musicfest. This decision did not come easily, but for the safety of our team and the musicians, as well as to continue the critical construction work, we have no other choice.

Let’s get our Castle in the Harbor fortified so it will shine brightly for generations to come. Money is still needed for this construction to continue, so please donate via this link: www.huntingtonlighthouse.org.

The 2018 Musicfest will ROCK the BAY! We will have plenty to celebrate and we promise the Lighthouse Musicfest will be back, BIGGER and BETTER than ever before, so rest up!

Huntington Lighouse construction HLH July 2017Sincerely,

Pamela Setchell

P.S. Stay tuned for Boat Parade 2017 on November 24. Make plans NOW to put your boat in the parade! Let’s rock the harbor with a blowout parade!
