Washed Harbor Light.

We thank our many donors and Ryan Daley for soft washing Harbor Light last Sunday. Ryan wrote: I was most impressed with how my guys set up the tarp taped to the lighthouse to collect literally every drop of water that came down! We had the crevices STUFFED with the socks so nothing snuk by them! Photo, top: Bob Tellier
