Luna Pier – An event will be held to celebrate revitalization efforts to a pier and scheduled renovations to the Luna Pier Lighthouse in southeastern Michigan’s Monroe County.

Consumers Energy says the event begins at 11 a.m. Tuesday at the lighthouse. Luna Pier is along Lake Erie.

The utility says renovations to the lighthouse will provide area residents and visitors with a gathering space and help protect the natural beauty of the lakeshore.

The Consumers Energy Foundation contributed to the preservation effort with a $210,000 grant. A $25,000 grant was made last year to support work on the pier, which is located not far from the lighthouse.
