The H. Lee White Museum & Maritime Center celebrates Lighthouse Weekend Aug. 3 and 4 beginning with a Lighthouse Stamping event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Aug. 3.
A series of New England lighthouse stamps, recently released by the U.S. Postal Service, will be offered for sale along with specialty envelopes and postcards. A custom cancellation stamp was created for the Saturday event.
On Aug. 4, the museum recognizes the birthday of the United States Coast Guard. Lighthouse/Coast Guard historian and chair of the City of Oswego Lighthouse Committee Ted Panayotoff will be on hand both afternoons for discussion related to the theme of lighthouses.
A special reduced admission is offered all weekend. The museum will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.
The weekend events are sponsored in part by Wayne Drug and NBT Bank.
