Back to school and a book signing at The Maine Lighthouse Museum

Maine lighthouse museum

September is one busy time of year!!! I am missing the lazy days of summer, reading a book on the back porch while the kids play in the tree fort. I think September comes in like a high speed train, What do you think? First football and soccer teams begin, then the boys Cub Scout den’s meet again, oh yeah and did I mention school is back in session.

This Saturday, I am honored to be invited to participate at a great fundraiser for The Maine Lighthouse Museum. There are going to be 11 authors throughout the day, in the beautiful coastal town of Rockland Maine, known as the “Jewel of the Maine Coast”.

 The Museum’s mission: “The Maine Lighthouse Museum is to educate the public regarding the long standing traditions, heroism and progress of America’s Lighthouse and Lifesaving services and the U.S. Coast Guard”. I am a bit partial since my husband was a proud serving member of the U.S. Coast Guard. The lighthouse museum is in the top 15 places to visit in Maine. Once you have been there you will see why!!!

This Saturday September 14th You can find us at the Maine Lighthouse Museum, one park drive,  Rockland, Maine. Love to see you there!!!
