On Thursday, October 11, come hear Lori Feret discuss “Great Lakes Tales & Lighthouse Ghost Stories,” during the monthly Friends of the Plymouth Historical Museum meeting, beginning at 7:30 p.m. Our shores and lakes attract stories of old Indian legends, tales of wandering ghosts from lost ships, sightings of ghost ships and accounts of sea monsters. Lighthouses seem to attract many a story of paranormal activity. Come listen to a few of these stories and learn more about the lives of the lighthouse keepers. This presentation includes tales of the Battle of Lake Erie in 1813; Belle Isle, Detroit; Peche Island, Ontario; Erieland Lighthouse, Pennsylvania; 1813 Battle of Lake Erie, Ohio; St. Joseph Lighthouse Depot, Michigan.

Lori is an active member of the Great Lakes Lighthousekeepers Association, the U. S. Lighthouse Society, and several local lighthouse societies and historical societies and currently is an unemployed business/systems analyst. She also is involved with a number of volunteer groups: the Detroit Zoo, both Boblo Boats, the Belle Isle Conservancy, Project HOPE League of Greater Detroit, People for Palmer Park, and Fellowship Lutheran Church.
