On the afternoon of August 4 from 2 to 3 p.m., the Oak Orchard Lighthouse hosts an Afternoon Tea, “Simply Messing About in Boats” with Craig Wilson, a feature writer and weekly columnist for USA Today.

He graduated from Lyndonville High School in 1967 and is the son of June Wilson and the late Roy Wilson.

The presentation will take place at the Haines Cottage on Ontario Street at Point Breeze, just east of the Lighthouse. Reservations are required with a donation of $20 per person. Contact Dick Anderson at 585-682-4383, or reserve on line at www.oakorchardlighthouse.org.
