The Enterprise — Melissa Hale-Spencer

“You can’t be a beacon if your light don’t shine”: This lighthouse, with a working light at the top of the tower, forms a focal point for Yvonne Lustenhouwer’s garden. It was a gift from her brother, who lives in Texas and drove it to Altamont in his truck. Her garden is filled with mementoes from family and friends. Most of the treasures, she puts away in a storage shed over the winter.
