From Bob Trapani

"Congressman Mike Castle of Delaware recently toured Overfalls Lightship in the wake of the Overfalls Maritime Museum Foundation (OMMF) receiving a $275,000 "Save America's Treasures" grant. OMMF has done a superb job at bringing this wonderful lightship to the threshold of complete preservation...a true testimony as to what a group of dedicated volunteers can do by staying the course.

Stephen, What great news for a project that I believe was both literally and figuratively stuck in the mud ... thanks for posting the article ...
