Swallowtail Now

About 30 people attended the evening presentation at the Grand Manan Museum, Thursday August 4, entitled Swallowtail Now.  It was fun and a challenge to put together the talk from hundreds of photos taken over the last year, as well as some historic photos to set the tone.  This is the 25th year since the de-staffing of the lighthouse, November 1985, and the 75th anniversary of the death of the lightkeeper, Elodie Ingalls Foster.

The Museum graciously split the door donations with Swallowtail Keepers Society.  The evening talks are a part of their annual fund raising and public education series.
