The lantern has been removed from the steeple of First Parish Church in Dorchester. You can read the Boston Globe story (which doesn't quote me) the Boston Herald story (which does), or view a small photo album. I also showed up on New England Cable News and Fox25 news and will have to see about getting the video--I'm sure you're all dying to know what I look and sound like. More photos will be added soon, as well as video of the lantern being removed. If you would like to know how you can contribute to the restoration of this Dorchester landmark, please email me. I'd like to thank everyone who came out to watch the lantern be removed. Watch this space for the announcement of the opening of the time capsule.
