Meetings & Minutes
The November meeting will be on November 9 at BoatUS at 1900 hours.
Commander Frederick D. Zugay, JN who boats on the Potomac River
will share his fascination for our Potomac River lighthouses.
He’ll discuss the background of the 3 lighthouses
currently on the river and 8 former light-houses that no longer exist.
He was always interested on what lighthouses were on the
platforms that today just contain an automated beacon.
