It's great to see these two groups working together to help this Light......

From the story............

"The association "wanted to be involved in the restoration of the lighthouse, so they began saving money many years ago. That's what's given us such a great start on the restoration," Hinds said.
Fees visitors pay to climb the lighthouse have amounted to approximately $150,000 over the years, which is going toward restoration efforts. In addition, two grants for $65,000 and $35,000 have helped fund the project.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, which came to own the lighthouse in 2004, is setting aside a portion of refuge entrance fees to match the money that the association is raising.
Hinds said the association is also working to establish an endowment fund so that the interest from that fund can be used for maintenance of the lighthouse once the restoration is complete. The final stage of the restoration project will be painting the building's exterior."
LIVE LONG AND PROSPER

"There are two pips in a beaut, four beauts in a lulu,
Eight lulus in a doozy, and sixteen doozies in a humdinger.

No one knows how many humdingers
there are in a lollapalooza."
