Vote for Bodie Island Lighthouse!

bodieWith summer approaching you might be thinking about a nice trip to the beach... well, in NC we have some lovely lighthouses you should see!  One of them is the Bodie Island Lighthouse.

In an email I received from Bett Padgett, the President of the Outer Banks Lighthouse Society - it appears Bodie needs some work - and the fine folks at Jeld Wen might be willing to help!


In 2005 Jeld-Wen windows and doors began a lighthouse restoration initiative by taking nominations of towers that needed new windows and doors. The public could then vote on the lighthouse they consider being the lighthouse that would most benefit from this award. This year, out of 49 nominees, Bodie Island Lighthouse is one of the 12 finalists.

If our NC tower wins, it will receive 8 windows and one door that are reproductions of the originals. You can read more about the contest below and VOTE (please, for Bodie Island Lighthouse) As you may recall, funding for the restoration of BILH as pulled from the budget just minutes before the US Senate voted in December 2007.bodie

Monies for its restoration will be requested again, but it has been passed over several years and there is no guarantee that it will be passed this year. The NPS feels that any help from other agencies and companies will be welcome to lessen the $2.8 million dollar project and may better our chances of getting funds for Bodie this year."

Please take a moment and vote now - doesn't cost anything - and might save tax dollars!

This reminds me of Lighthouse Landing at Kingsland Point at Sleepy Hollow on the Hudson River.  They did a restoration and now construction around it has been delayed (A GM plant used to occupy that spot.)
