In September, a group of employees volunteered their time to help restore and maintain the historic Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse for the fourth year in a row. Located in the Chesapeake Bay, volunteers left the dock early in the morning and spent the day scraping, painting, cleaning and assisting with other jobs to help the U.S Lighthouse Society restore the National Landmark to its condition in the 1890s. KCI’s dive team also performed an underwater and surface water inspection of the structure.
Volunteers were also joined by Bill Ryan, who was a former United States Coast Guardsman and alumni of the Thomas Point Light sub command of USCG Station Annapolis. He was able to share stories and provide a first-hand look at what life was like being stationed at the lighthouse.
