Letter from Bill Younger of Harbour Lights

Dear Friends and Valued Collectors:

We are eager to share some exciting news about our company and your beloved Harbour Lights Collection. We are pleased to announce that we have joined forces with Lighthouse Marketing LTD, located in West Kennebunk, the parent company to Lighthouse Depot!

We have completed a transaction that makes Harbour Lights an independent subsidiary of Lighthouse Marketing LTD – the nation’s leading source for everything lighthouse and a major supporter of Harbour Lights for many years.

Don Devine, President of Lighthouse Depot is familiar to many of you having attended all of the reunions. Along with partners Tim Harrison and Kathleen Finnegan – who started Lighthouse Digest – Don was instrumental in helping found the American Lighthouse Foundation and some of you have traveled on the wonderful lighthouse tours sponsored by ALF and Lighthouse Depot. On a more personal level, Don is a lighthouse lover – just like you – and is a longtime collector of Harbour Lights himself. What better hands could we entrust our collection and our collectors to, than Don Devine? We know you’ll agree – it’s a perfect match!

The Younger Family will still be involved! I will see you at In-Store events, and Nancy and Kim will join me for Regional events and lighthouse appearances. Rachel will continue to write the Lighthouse Legacy Newsletter, Harry will still create all the beautiful lighthouses, with our same sculptors and factory, and Kathy will remain in charge of Customer Service. Even the phone number will remain the same. So if you have questions about a special sentinel or an upcoming event, you can still check the website or call 800-365-1219.

You may be asking, “Why?” The answer is simple. Nancy and I want to retire – at least partially – so we can spend more time together and with our children and grandchildren. We will never separate ourselves from Harbour Lights and our wonderful retailers and collectors. You are our family and our friends. We’re just removing the day to day demands of a major business. You might say that we’ll now be enjoying the fun side, which includes seeing YOU!

We know you will give Don the same support and loyalty to Harbour Lights that we have received for more than a decade. He is committed to making the Collection even better, including new and exciting introductions, and he will be looking to you for feedback and suggestions on ways to improve Harbour Lights. Keep your flame burning brightly, and keep the Harbour Lights legacy alive! We’re counting on you!

Our Harbour Lights website will always have up-to-the-minute information about events and other activities, as well as photos of the latest new introductions. The 2006-07 Society plans are just about finalized, and you’ll learn all about them on our site. Visit often and bring your friends! We’ll stay in touch, and we look forward to seeing you along the way!

Thanks for always Keeping the Flame!
