In celebration of National Lighthouse Day, Nauset Light Preservation Society will offer a special poster of Nauset Light donated to us by Chris Kelly to the first twenty people who become new members of the society, at any level, during our open house on Sunday, 6th August, 4:30 to 7:30 PM. Membership forms will be available at the lighthouse and the new member will receive the poster and a copy of the 2017 newsletter. The poster is 12” by 18” printed on card stock.
Payment can be by cash or check. Questions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Today, volunteers of the Nauset Light Preservation Society did some Spring cleaning at the lighthouse. Inside the lighthouse, the Lantern Room, stairway, lookout room, and floor were cleaned top to bottom. The grounds outside also got a good once-over. We're ready for you on Opening Day, 5/14/17! See you there!
We had a wonderful turnout at last night's Full Moon Tour. 173 guests visited Nauset Light, climbed the tower, learned about her history, and took photos of the full moon reflected in the ocean. Thanks for visiting Nauset Light! Special thanks to Norma Borenstein Gordon for letting us share your beautiful photo.
Saturday, October 15, 2016, from 6:30pm - 8:00pm.
On the full moon night of Saturday, October 15 bring a flashlight and meet us at the Nauset Light Beach parking lot, off Cable Road in Eastham for our annual Full Moon Tour of Nauset Light. Let us show you the magic of the full moon at Nauset Light.
Moonrise over the Atlantic is at 6:00pm. If you can't join us for the full moon, our Sunday afternoon tours continue through October 30 from 1-4pm.
Our 2016 tour schedule begins Sunday, May 8 on Mother's Day. We will then be open for tours every Sunday through October 30 as well as Tuesdays and Wednesdays in July and August.
With our new Tuesday tours in July and August we have 44 tour dates this year, all hosted by volunteers. We hope to see you at one of them.
At the annual meeting of Nauset Light Preservation Society held on December 4, 2013, David M. Gray retired as president. David served four accomplishment-filled years during which time he initiated the complete refurbishment of the light, both inside and outside, thus improving every visitor's experience. David was responsible for contacting Snyder's-Lance, the owner of Cape Cod Potato Chip Company, to assist NLPS in funding the cost of painting Nauset Light. The lighthouse is featured on the Cape Cod Potato Chip bag. Snyder's-Lance graciously paid the entire cost of $42,000. See the June 2013 update below.
A wreath is hung on the lighthouse every year at Christmas. This year, the board of directors of NLPS voted unanimously that from now on, the wreath will be known as "The David M. Gray Christmas Wreath" in honor of David's many contributions to NLPS.
