The Chesapeake Chapter of the United States Lighthouse Society is once again hosting the 2011 Maryland Lighthouse Challenge.
From Sept. 17 to Sept. 18, participants who visit any of the participating lighthouses around Md will get a free souvenir unique to that lighthouse. Anyone who visits all ten lighthouses will recieve an additional gift to commend his or her efforts.
This year's theme is "Reading Lights the Way." Participants are encouraged to read about lighthouse architecture, history and the keepers who watched over them.
The following lighthouses are participating in the 2011 Maryland Lighthouse Challenge this year:
Concord Point, Cove Point, Drum Point, Fort Washington, Hooper Strait, Piney Point, Point Lookout, Seven Foot Knoll, Turkey Point and Lightship Chesapeake.
