The latest edition of the Canaveral Beacon is available now. It includes a letter from the late State Senator Dorothy Hukill congratulating our own Bev Merrilees for her nomination for the Non-Profit Business Champion Award for the Cocoa Beach Regional Chamber of Commerce’s 30th Annual Business Champion of the Year.
Sadly, we are mourning the passing of State Senator Dorothy Hukill on October 2, 2018. Senator Hukill was a strong supporter in the Florida Senate of the Lighthouse Foundation mission to restore the Cape Canaveral Lighthouse to its historic setting. In memory of Senator Dorothy Hukill, the Cape Canaveral Lighthouse Foundation will engrave a special brick for placement with so many of her friends’ bricks at the Lighthouse.
This month’s Volunteer Spotlight features Joe McLaughlin. You can read more about his contributions to the Lighthouse Foundation working at the Keeper’s Closet. Meet Joe in the August newsletter.
You will also find a brief article for making planned gifts to support the foundation. The article provides some information to help supporters fulfill their philanthropic goals. Be sure to discuss your estate gifts with your financial planning professional.
Check out some of the upcoming events for the Cape Canaveral Lighthouse Foundation and the Florida Lighthouse Association.
