Join Will Winter to learn history of Alki Lighthouse on Thursday evening, Aug. 8

Did you miss the 100th birthday celebration of the Alki Lighthouse on June 1, 2013? Would you like to catch up on the history of this centennial landmark in our community?

Alki resident Will Winter, a member of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society and of the all-volunteer U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, will present a program on the history of the lighthouse at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 8, 2013, at the historical society's Log House Museum, 3003 61st Ave. S.W.

In addition, the historical society will present a new video about the centennial festivities for the Alki Lighthouse.

The historical society launched an enhanced exhibit on the lighthouse, "Alki Centennial Summer: From Lantern to Lighthouse," on June 1, 2013, the 100th birthday of the lighthouse.

The exhibit will be on display through the summer and fall, leading to the historical society's annual Champagne Gala Lunch from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9, 2013, at Salty's on Alki, 1936 Harbor Ave. S.W. The theme of the gala will be "Tripping the Lighthouse Fantastic."
