Sheffield Island Lighthouse 150 Anniversary Dinner
September 15, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Sheffield Island is the site for one of falls most highly anticipated events, the Anniversary Dinner on Sheffield Island to fete the 150th birthday of the Sheffield Island Lighthouse. “As caretakers of this iconic maritime treasure, we have planned an exceptional night out for friends, old and new, that support the conservation efforts of the Seaport Association. We want this dinner to be memorable because it is not every day that an iconic edifice like the lighthouse turns 150 in a state that is just over 360 years old,“ said Mike Reilly, President of the Norwalk Seaport Association.”
This evening’s celebratory dinner menu has been inspired for the most discerning palates and has been organized with foodies and lovers of lighthouses in mind. The menu will showcase the bounty of the sea with a raw bar featuring oysters three ways from Copps Island, grilled and chilled cilantro shrimp, lobster tails and Rhode Island clam chowder, and all the fixings. There will be a dessert table and even s’mores by the fire pit! Mixers, soda, and water for alcoholic beverages are included.
