I have just finished recovering from a 4-day non-stop whirlwind of activity with the Great Lakes Lighthouse Festival where I was not only a vendor but their official photographer as well. It was a marvelous, though pleasantly tiring, four days. In case you are not aware, every October the Great Lakes Lighthouse Festival Museum and Festival put on four fun packed days of fund-raising, selling craft and art items, eating and making donations to not only scholarship funds that help promote the education of future light keepers, but also to raise funds for the preservation and restoration of the wonderful lighthouses found all across this great country. These stationary soldiers of the waters are a part of our nation’s history and well worth maintaining.
To show you just how far these wonderful people are willing to go to raise monies for the scholarships and restoration/preservation projects, just take a look at this picture of Lee Scherwitz who not only shed his “manly” clothes for his wife’s square dancing dress decorated with lighthouses, but shed his locks of hair as well. This self-less act raised over $1,000! And that was just for one night!! These are great people.
Even with all the work with the GLLF and school, I have managed to get a start on Christmas gifts! How about you?
Have a great day, until next time, remember don’t sweat the small stuff, ‘cuz it’s ALL small stuff.
