The Cape Canaveral Lighthouse Foundation ordered perfect weather, delicious lobster and lighthouse enthusiasts, and got it all on February 27. The guests were welcomed by Channel 13’s Greg Pallone who served as the event’s master of ceremonies. Also greeting the crowd and thanking the event sponsors was RADM Bob Merrilees, CCLF President.
Col. Eric Krystkowiak, 45th Launch Group Commander, spoke about the partnership between the 45th Space Wing and the Foundation.
Thanks to our major sponsors, this year the event was an overwhelming success. Appreciation is extended to: FLORIDA TODAY Communications, Clear Channel Outdoor, Hensel Phelps, SunWard Tours, FPL, GO Travel, RADM Jim Underwood, Port Canaveral, AECOM, Propeller Club of Port Canaveral, National Solar, and Gold Coast Jewelry & Pawn.
After the munching on lobster, the guests were driven to the lighthouse where docents gave guided tours of the historic structure. They told the story of why the lighthouse is located where it is and about the lighthouse keeper’s and their families.
The Foundation expresses its gratitude to all who attended the 2016 event.
