Vote for Cana Island Lighthouse before Sept 15th in the National Trust for Historic Preservation This Place Matters Community Challenge.

With your help, Cana Island could win $25,000 in funds for preservation.

Voting Instructions

1) Please go to http://www.dcmm.org/ and click on the large yellow letters “This Place Matters!” Read about the restoration project.

2) Log in/Register. If you do not wish to receive emails from the National Trust for Historic Preservation, un-check the box; the National Trust honors your privacy (although you will receive a one-time email containing your log-in and password for future visits as well as confirming receipt of your vote). Click SUBMIT.

3) The page will re-load, confirming your registration information. Be sure you are viewing the page for the property you wish to support (Cana Island Lighthouse in Baileys Harbor, Wisconsin on Lake Michigan), and click VOTE. Each person may vote once per email address. If you have more than one address you may vote again, but you must leave the browser and start again.

4) Tell your friends about this project! Click on “Tell A Friend” and fill in the form. Or, put a blurb on your facebook page and encourage votes for Cana Island Lighthouse! (Check out the Museum’s facebook page and link from there!)

If Cana Island receives the greatest number of votes in the National Trust’s on-line 2010 This Place Matters Community Challenge, the money will be used for a restoration grant from the Jeffris Family Foundation, which increases the award to $37,500!

Please don’t delay; the campaign ends on Sept. 15, 2010. By voting, you will help the Door County Maritime Museum raise awareness (and hopefully funds!) for the restoration project “Illuminating Our Heritage!”
