Youth Field Trip to Long Island Lighthouse Scheduled
July 10, 2012
On August 1, the East End Seaport Museum of Long Island, New York, will host a trip to Bug Light aboard the Peconic Star for the Village of Greenport’s summer campers. This event is part of the museum’s “give back” to the community, and to provide young people an experience of the maritime heritage of their town.
Catherine Matthews, the children’s recreation director for the village helped plan the trip. Terrence Joyce, of the Terrence Joyce Gallery in Greenport, who is committed to lending his skills and maritime knowledge to the local youth will also be an adult volunteer on this trip. Captain Dave Brennen of the Peconic Star has also helped to support this special outing for local youngsters.
