October 2019 Newsletter

The latest edition of the Canaveral Beacon is available now. It includes highlights and pictures of the Keep the Light Shining Fundraising Gala held at the American Muscle Car Museum on October 19.

The lighthouse experienced an equipment failure recently, leaving the rotating beacon non-operational. Thanks to the U.S. Coast Guard Aids to the Navigation Team in Ponce, our light was not out for long — replacing the failed equipment, completing the repair and returning the lighthouse to full operation.
