I really don't think they will get anywhere. :|

At least someone is trying to do something. Sometimes in history, all it takes is the right person at the right time to get things moving. Every good thing has to get started somehow. Perhaps the dream doesn't have to die, after all.

It's a slow process, I'll say. :|

Most everything is a slow process. Look at all the time it takes a dedicated group to restore or re-build a lighthouse, for example.

Please note the National Li0ghthouse Museum has been revived and has established a dynamic Board of Trustees, Advisors and FRIENDS dedicated to moving the Museum plans forward...
Go to our website: www.lighthousemuseum.org and learn more about the Museum and our latest efforts to turn a dream into reality!
Also go to www.SILive.com and put in National Lighthouse Museum to read local information and what the Staten Island community is saying about the movement!
We have launched the 1-1-11 challenge by 12! A challenge to the community and the nation (This is a national museum!) to raise one million dollars in one year to open Building #11 by 2012! Please help us in these efforts and you will finally see a museum...go to our website and you can pay through PayPal if you sincerely want to help in this effort to turn things around!
If a million children gave just $1 we would reach our goal! If 200,000 people gave $5 we would reach our goal! If 40,000 people gave $25 we would reach our goal...please help make this happen and assure all the lighthouses in the country are honored and respected as a united group deserving of this umbrella! The possibilities are endless...

That's very sweet of you...I see that you are very artistically inclined...perhaps you can donate your talent instead...maybe a lighthouse sketch or lighthouse cartoon...we can raffle off at our Children's Museum Table next week??? Just a thought!

That would be great...anything you'd like to draw that might be intersting to frame and raffle...next week's group are children! We are covering numerous tables in the next several months to get the word out...I saw you liked cartooning...have you related it at all to lighthouses? kids?...Really don't know your work, but I will leave it up to you...all our information is on www.lighthousemuseum.org ...
Just a thought?

We will be having several upcoming events whereby some of your art work could be used for raffle prizes, if framed...
Next weekend we will be at the SI Children's Museum having a booth for kids telling about lighthouses...we have six such booths in the next few months to cover...
So any help you can give in the form of art work can be very helpful...But you know your own work...this is just an idea, don't feel obligated to have to do so!
