Help spruce up the Lighthouse! Mission Point Lighthouse manager Ginger Schultz reports that there is a community work bee scheduled for June 7 at the Lighthouse, and dinner will be provided.

OMP residents and volunteers may show up any time after 1 p.m. to help paint the historic fence and plant perennials and annuals. Supplies will be available, but helpers are welcome to bring hand shovels and paintbrushes, as well as a lawn chair.

Old Mission Gazette is Reader Supported.

Located at the end of Center Road/M37 on the Old Mission Peninsula, Mission Point Lighthouse is now open for the season, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. daily. The first floor museum is free to tour; however, there is a small fee to see the 5th Order Fresnel lens, 2nd floor museum, and the tower. All proceeds from admissions benefit the Mission Point Lighthouse and its preservation, restoration and interpretation.

The park, trails and beach are open daily until 10 p.m. year round.

A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper. Because the Gazette is mainly reader-supported, I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks my way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP. Check out the donation page here. Thank you so much for your support. -jb
