Michelle Gee (from left), Dan Gee, and Janis Gee looked at the new stamps they bought before the First Day of Issue Ceremony of the New England Coastal Lighthouse Stamps.
The United States Postal Service announced five stamps that honor the region's lighthouses.
Boston Light, the country's first lighthouse, is featured on one of the stamps.
Sally Snowman, the keeper of Boston Light since 2003, was presented with a poster of the new stamp. She and her husband, Jay Thomson (left), talked after the ceremony.
"Whoever I send that stamp to ... it’s going to have a very special meaning," Snowman said.
