Lightship Overfalls sets volunteer recruitment event April 4

March 22, 2023

The Overfalls Foundation is looking for energetic volunteers to help maintain the Lightship Overfalls, operate the museum and store, and cover operational needs. 

To introduce potential volunteers to the Overfalls Foundation, facilities and volunteer opportunities, an information session and light dinner is set for 6 to 8 p.m., Tuesday, April 4, at the Virden Center, 1155 College Drive, Lewes,

Volunteers get the opportunity to be part of an organization responsible for preserving a National Historic Landmark, to work with a great team and to help others learn about the importance of lightships. The Coast Guard donated the Lightship Overfalls to Lewes in 1973, and it became a floating museum.

Areas of assistance include ship maintenance, tour guides, welcome center and ship’s store, communications and outreach, fundraising, event planning and advertising.

To sign up to attend the event, email Bob Murphy at
