Coastal blessing at Crooked River Sunday

The community is invited to the Crooked River Lighthouse in
Carrabelle this Sunday, May 30 from 3 to 3:30 p.m. for the annual Coastal
Blessing, where faith leaders from the Carrabelle area will share a prayer for
the coast.

Those who would like to gather with positive hearts for a
safe hurricane season are welcome at this event which has become an annual
tradition at the lighthouse.

“Since 2010, the lighthouse has conducted a ceremony on the
Sunday before the start of hurricane season where church leaders in the
community unite in shared positive intentions; that our coastal communities be
safe from hurricane damage,”  said Joan Matey, curator of the Crooked
 Lighthouse Museum

All are welcome to attend this free event; light
refreshments will be available after the ceremony. Come early or stay after and
explore the Keeper’s House Museum, open from 1 to 5 p.m.

Crooked River Lighthouse Park is just west of the Carrabelle
Public Beach Park at 1975 Hwy 98 West. For more information, contact the Museum
and Gift Shop at 850-697-2732 or carrabellelighthouse@gmail.com
