Happy Birthday LV118!

Today is the 85th anniversary of the launching of Lightship Overfalls (LV118) and her christening. First named “Cornfield” to associate her with her first duty station at Cornfield Point, the event marked the first time the ship touched the water and is traditionally known as her birthday. Come on down today and have a tour to learn more about the different names that LV118 has had. You can also check out the Lewes Historical Society Sea Glass Festival in Canalfront Park and at their main campus. It’s a beautiful day to be outside!
