SPRING UPDATE AND ANNUAL APPEAL

Home

FOSIL Annual Appeal launched

FOSIL's annual appeal was launched earlier this week. Gifts from our friends keep the house and tower open, maintain the trails and help with the continuing restoration of the buildings. If you would like to contribute, here’s the link: http://www.burntcoatharborlight.com/home/make-a-donation.html

In other news:

Once again, the keeper's house and the light tower will be open for visitors. Check here or on the FOSIL Facebook page in early June for the latest word on open days and hours.

There will be a Historical Society exhibit at the keeper's house, entitled "Keep Calm and Carry On:  Island Life during WWII," and new art work will be on display.

There will be a working kitchen and bathroom downstairs in the keeper's house, and we will begin restoring the upstairs rooms.

Restoration of the interior of the light tower will continue, and by the end of the summer we will begin to focus on the restoration of the tower exterior.

We plan some special events during the year and, as usual, the lighthouse surroundings and the  trails will be open dawn to dusk.

A big thank you to everyone who helps make this progress possible!
