Hi Kathy,

Tickets can be purchased from any NELL member, and we have a bunch who are members here at LH.Net. All members will be receiving a packet of tickets within the next week, if they don't already have a supply. Some members attended the Spring meeting in Maine this weekend and received them then.

Since individual members are selling these, we can take checks but no PayPal.

Thanks for asking! :D

Are they going to be selling any at lighthouses this month? I will be up in New England at the end of the month so I can buy some if they have any available.

Have you purchased your NELL raffle tickets? Any NELL member can sell them to you. $5 each or purchase 6 @ $25.00!

I'm happy to report that ticket sales are going good for the New England Lighthouse Lovers 10th Anniversary Raffle. Please don't miss your chance to purchase these tickets.

A ticket gives you a chance to win a week's stay at Race Point Lighthouse or a week on the Outer Banks of North Carolina where you can visit the Hatteras, Ocracoke, Bodie and Currituck lighthouses during your stay.

Or, you could win a four day lighthouse cruise along the coast of Maine on the Schooner Mary Day, or choose a week at any of these destinations:
Aruba, St.Martin, Hawaii, Cancun, Puerta Vallarta, or Disney Area, FL.

How does a weekend on Nantucket staying at the beautiful Nantucket Inn sound to you?

You might even win a stay in the Assistant Keeper's dwelling at the remote Thacher Island lighthouse where you would be transported by boat to the island to live like the keepers did for a weekend.

See the first post in this thread for complete information on the drawing, or see our 1/2 page ad in the current issue of Lighthouse Digest.

Drawing will be held at NELL's fall meeting, October 14th but you do not need to be present to win.

Proceeds to benefit New England lighthouse preservation through NELL, a chapter of the American Lighthouse Foundation.

Thanks to everyone here at Lighthousing.net who has responded already. If you missed the first notice, remember tickets can be purchased from any NELL member.

Judy :D

As Judy knows I followed up and send her a check for my tickets. I did this with thoughts of Peter. He really loved being involved with NELL.

So if you have not bought any tickets please help support the cause.
