Friends of Plum and Pilot Islands’ Sunset Cruise Features Kuhns and Sawyn

The Friends of Plum and Pilot Islands (FOPPI) are offering their fourth annual sunset cruise July 27. Cruisers will meet at Gills Rock around 5:30 pm, leave at 6:15 pm and return at 9:30 pm. Enjoy the mellow music of Jeanne Kuhns and George Sawyn, food catered by Jackson Harbor Soup, beverages and a silent auction, all with a beautiful sunset backdrop. 

The cruise is a critical fundraiser to maintain FOPPI’s work to make Plum Island’s iconic maritime treasures accessible to the public. All proceeds will go toward stabilizing and restoring the life-saving station, lighthouse and related buildings. 

Knowledgeable folks from FOPPI and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will be available to answer questions about the islands’ history and the status of historic-restoration and wildlife-preservation efforts. 

Tickets – $100 per person – can be purchased at
