October gives us the brilliant colors of autumn. Surely this is a wonderful time to get out to visit or re-visit as many lighthouses before the cool winter winds become apparent.

I have just spoken to our friends at Harbour Lights and it is official, Gang, Harbour Lights will hold their third reunion so pack your bags because we are heading for Baltimore, Maryland October 4th thru 7th 2001. This will be a little different as we will be arriving on a Thursday and departing after Sunday brunch with Bill Younger. Collectors in the past have said reunions were just a little short so an additional day has been added. This is great news!

For those new to Harbour Lights, this manufacturer of some of the finest lighthouse figurines available, gathers all its collectors together for an outstanding weekend of lighthouse fun, seminars, dinners and entertainment. In previous years this event has been held in San Diego, California and Providence, Rhode Island, both of which were just a lot of fun and a wonderful opportunity to meet other collectors from throughout the nation. I would imagine in 2001 the attendance will broaden internationally. Some of the details are as follows; we will be staying at the Baltimore, Marriott Waterfront a new hotel opening early 2001. Registration for this event will be this October 14th, 2000, Harbour Lights opening the phones from 6am pacific time to 12 noon.

Another little tid-bit In 2001 Harbour Lights will be celebrating its tenth anniversary and will offer a special piece that will be available from January to December 2001. Harbour Lights is very tight lipped on revealing the name of this light. Any guesses what piece it is? My guess would be this light is several centuries old. A sneak peak is coming in the next Legacy, volume seven, issue four which should be out later this month.

Harbour Lights has completed introducing lighthouses for this year, but the drawing board is well under way for next January’s releases. From my understanding, the New England region will be quite popular for early next year introductions.

Retirement news, Round Island, Michigan officially retired September 27th, in the next issue of Lighthouse Digest we will be reporting on recent trends on the secondary market.

Until then, as all lighthouse enthusiasts do, take advantage of this spectacular autumn season by visiting a lighthouse. Keep the Flame!
