    Funding to repair the roof at the Dunkirk Lighthouse is beginning to fall into place.

    State Senator Catharine Young and assemblyman William Parment have announced that Chautauqua Home Rehabilitation & Improvement Corporation (CHRIC) has been awarded a grant through the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation to continue work the non-profit corporation is undertaking at the 1875 Dunkirk lighthouse. This is the second OPRHP award CHRIC has received for the lighthouse restoration project.
