C. End of Dock Navigation Light – Commissioner Lane reported that the West side navigation light had stopped working. He and Rob Kinnaird were able to remove and repair the lamp.

These navigation lights are required by the Coast Guard and they must be maintained and remain in working order.
D. Sarah Runnels – 100 Year Dock Celebration Committee member shared the slide show to be presented at the Cake and Ice Cream social. What a fantastic slide show with pictures from the original construction of the dock to today. Bravo Sarah!
