CRABCAKE: Thomas Point LIghthouse needs some help (June 2019)

This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs! What is a Crabcake? Well, it’s a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20. In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!

Hands down–the most fun I have had recording a podcast ever!  I mean really–sitting in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay IN the Thomas Point Light House…how could it be anything else?

Today, we talk with John Potvin who is a local resident that happens to be the Preservation Foreman for the US Lighthouse Society who is in charge of basically making sure the iconic landmark is in top shape!

We discuss how you can get out and INTO the lighthouse yourself (go to the Annapolis Maritime Museum & Park), the history of the lighthouse from the light keepers to the Coast Guard to today, the financial needs of the lighthouse which are many (there is a GoFund Me along with a generous matching donor), and the great group of volunteers from the Annapolis Woodworking Guild that put in more than 2000 volunteer hours every year to make sure that the lighthouse remains true to its origins.

Have a listen!
