Start Spreadin' the Word

The Point Wilson Lighthouse is an iconic part of Port Townsend. Images of our local lighthouse appear all over town. You'll see them on buildings, as photos hung in homes, as drawings and paintings in galleries downtown and in logos for local businesses and organizations.

For the last five years, the US Lighthouse Society and its local affiliate have been hard at work renovating and restoring the Point Wilson lightstation, and opening it to the public. To speed that process and -- in particular -- to open the lighthouse to more visitors, we could use a hand.

On February 28, Volunteer Coordinator Dick Richardson and super volunteer Evelyn Richardson gave a presentation to the Kiwanis Club in Port Townsend to tell club members about the lighthouse and about what the Lighthouse Society and the many volunteers are doing there. And to ask them for help with this important work.
