How they got their jobs, and the adventures they had, will be shared at this Point Arena Lighthouse event. People of all ages who love lighthouses can help in this interactive presentation by deciding which lady lighthouse keeper you want to know about. Directing the conversation will be the spirit of Emily Fish, from the Pt. Pinos Lighthouse in Pacific Grove a century ago.
