On July 2, “Stella Prince/The Lady Lighthouse Keeper – Fact or Fiction” will be presented by Mary Korpi. History tells us that Stella Maria Prince Terry was the only woman to serve as a lighthouse keeper at Horton Point Lighthouse in Southold. But what do we know about this dedicated woman who resisted society’s norms to perform what was then considered ‘man’s work’? How did her life differ from other women of her day? Author Mary Korpi will explore the history behind her historical novel as we discover what is fact and what is fiction? Rain date: July 3. Lecture begins 2pm.

Ever have the drawstring pull out of a pair of pants or the hood of a sweatshirt? Apparently, having a drawstring “malfunction” was not a new problem.
—–
Today, a handy person could use a paperclip to re-thread the drawstring.
—–
In the past a person could use a threader like the one seen here. It’s made of bone and is flat. The eye is just big enough to accept a drawstring ribbon – and it could easily move through the pocket meant to hold the drawstring.
