April 26, 2008 April Workday has pleasant weather and Accomplishes Many Tasks

April 26, 2009

Volunteers from the Point Lookout Lighthouse Preservation Society spent a wonderfully sunny day accomplishing some long overdue tasks at the lighthouse. We repaired the damaged shingles on the Potomac River side of the roof. Not only will this prevent water damage, the repaired roof looks much better after the repair. In keeping with the Potomac River side theme, volunteers also sanded and painted the entrance steps to the lighthouse, which were in dire need of a good two coats of paint. We also continued pruning and trimming the yard, which has grown wild with all of the rain that we have had this spring.
