Dianna Stampfler, Promote Michigan Speakers BureauDianna Stampfler of Promote Michigan will be presenting “Ladies of the Lights”.

They were women before their time, taking on the romantic, yet dangerous and physically demanding job of tending to the beacons that protected the shoreline. In all, some 40 women have been identified who excelled in this profession over the years — dating back as early as the 1840s and as recent as present day. Nearly 70 images of keepers, their families and their lights make up this presentation. The program includes readings from newspapers and autobiographies, as well as a the list of featured ladies and additional reading references for attendees.
