Lighthouse Poetry Project launched

The Save the Gay Head Light committee has launched The Lighthouse Poetry Project, an effort to inform students about the need to prevent the Light from toppling into the sea, and to ground them in its history so that they understand and are excited by its importance, according to a press release. Educator and poet Fan Ogilvie will lead the students in poetic writing exercises, and Gay Head Lighthouse keeper Richard Skidmore will speak of the history of the light and illustrate his talk with images from the 1880s to the present day.
