Wishing all our Members and all the people I worked with during our Lighthouse Tour season a very Happy Thanksgiving this year. I know this year has been rough especially with the virus and all the limits on functions that we had to put up with, but even in these times we have to think of everything we have to be thankful for. So from this Lighthouse descendant and East End Seaport Tour Guide wishing everyone a very Happy and Safe Thanksgiving.

I would like to wish all the Hard Working People at the East End Seaport Museum a very Happy Holiday Season. I really enjoy being the lead narrator for our lighthouse tours but the work the museum people do setting up these tours is outstanding. My job is simple compared to theirs, I give the tour but all the work setting up the tours are set up by the workers in the museum, for example checking messages, accepting lighthouse tour reservations and setting up the tours. The people in the museum do a fantastic job and its really an honor to work with all of them. So to all of them I wish a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful, prosperous and Healthy 2020.
The Kayak Contest Committee would like to thank: Prestons, Mills, North Fork Welding and Kevin Mcelroy for their support, sponsorship, and donations to help make this year's Maritime Festival event such a success. Thank you!
Thank you Robert Jester ! The boys had a great time! Tina Goldsmith Quarty
