The Montauk Lighthouse Committee is gearing up for the return of the big holiday Lighting of the Light on Saturday at 4:30 p.m. The lights will be turned on by the Ecker family, to whom this year’s ceremony is dedicated, at 5:15. 

The committee is accepting donations to defray the cost of lighting up the landmark, which has been estimated to be around $50,000. The committee has asked that checks be made payable to the Montauk Historical Society, P.O. Box 943, Montauk 11954.
