The metal foundation for the landing dock at
Harbor of Refuge -- sans deck -- awaits spring repairs.
Volunteers had to put down a half dozen planks to provide an
access route to the lighthouse.
Volunteers make 'damage assessments' at Harbor or Refuge and
DE Breakwater East End
Spring had barely sprung when DRBLHF
volunteers were in the launch and out to the lighthouses to
see how Ole Man Winter had treated them .
Under the leadership of Work Party Chair John
Gordon and Board Member Red Moulinier, volunteers assessed and
measured and inventoried and planned how to right the wrongs
Because of the relatively mild winter, damage
at both lighthouses was mild, except for the deck at Harbor.
The deck was fatally damaged by Tropical Storm Ernesto last
fall, then finished off by winter storms. The lower deck
is completely gone; the upper deck is missing about 20% of its
Work will get under way in April. In
addition to replacing the deck, volunteers will give the two
lights a spring cleaning and make other minor repairs.
If you'd like to volunteer, phone 302-644-7046 and leave a message for John.
