Join us Sunday, May 7th from 2 to 4 p.m. for the Friends of the Port Hueneme Library's annual business meeting. The meeting and installation of officers will be followed by guest speaker Rose Castro-Bran, who has been the curator of the Port Hueneme Lighthouse since July 2002, and has published books entitled Lighthouses of the Ventura Coast and Lighthouses of Greater Los Angeles.
Castro-Bran promises to share her wealth of archival photos, amusing anecdotes from the original lighthouse keepers, and the fascinating history of Port Hueneme’s two unique lighthouses.
The author is a public affairs specialist in the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary and a member of the Aids to Navigation Team for Los Angeles/Long Beach, which repairs and maintains local California lighthouses. She and her husband Kim joined the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary shortly after the tragic events of September 11th.
