No one knows how many humdingers
there are in a lollapalooza."

“The Point Breeze lighthouse is the first one to be built on Lake Ontario in 100 years.”


Apparently, the writer overlooked the Olcott Replica Light, just down the road a ways to the West......From Lighthouse Friends......

Yes they did. Not the biggest, fanciest lighthouse; but a lighthouse none-the-less.

Hey, I liked it when I first saw it in 2005....

Perhaps it didn't make that big of a 'Splash' when they put it up ?

I see they continue to compound their mistake......

"Completed in May, the lighthouse is the first to be built on Lake Ontario in 100 years."



Nice to see when the light is going in, and to be lit on the 21st....Ought to be able to see that on the webcam.....

"The Orleans County Sheriff's Department will participate with its marine boat and K-9 unit and the Oak Orchard Yacht Club, who have sponsored the light in the lighthouse, will have boats in the water. The light is expected to be installed for the event, and will be officially lit that day."

Thanks for the update Barry. It must be terribly frustrating for Peg and the committee to have made it this far and find they need a bit more to finish the job. I hope they get the extra cash they are asking for.
