Rick Day, Christina Ankeney, Amber Eck Duby, Jeff Duby, Brian Clune, Cassie Boyd, Chris Boyd, Tamra Hall, Kirsten Star and Colleen Dolan-Clune – all residents of or business owners in Ocean Beach/ Pt.

The Maldives, a group of about 1,200 islands, separated into groups of atolls, is just north of the Equator and south of India in the Indian Ocean.

Tom and Geri Nielsen hold their Beacon on the grounds of the Vatican in Rome. They toured the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica in the distance, enjoying the history and beauty of the sites in Rome.
The Beacon accompanied Greg Halsey (left) and Italian friend Marion, whom Halsey met during a month-long hike on the Camino de Santiago in Spain. “When I told him about The Beacon, he asked to be part of the picture so that he could say he was featured in an American newspaper,” said Halsey.
