2013 Community Outreach Update
For 2013, please consider participating in the outreach team for next year! As always: volunteers (new and returning) are essential to keep our Society throughout the community. Remember, you don’t need to be a lighthouse “expert” to be part of the team—just willing to discuss our shared interests with event patrons. There’s always someone to “fill in the blanks”. We have an outstanding base of lighthouse knowledge in our membership ranks. Consider joining the Community Outreach team for the 2013 season.
For 2013, we will also continue what has now become a tradition of giving out NJLHS logo items to those who visit us at our various community outreach events. We are in the process of replenishing our supplies of these items—and we may have some new items in store, so “stay tuned”!
Please feel free to contact me with any info on NJ events where NJLHS might want to be represented. My mailing address is:

The Board of Directors of the New Jersey Lighthouse Society Inc., has agreed to expand our mission of historical preservation, restoration and education to include efforts to inform the youth of our state of the historical significance of our lighthouses and the need to protect and preserve them for future generations.
This effort would focus on the primary and secondary educational systems and would utilized the New Jersey Network video, The Eye of the Mariner, and the book, Sentinels of the Shore by Bill Gately, to engender a consciousness of our lighthouse structures and to begin an awareness of the need to preserve them.
Our initial thrust is to enlist member and private foundation support to finance this endeavor. It is our ultimate desire to make the video and book available to each public or private school district in the state that expresses an interest. While the number of public school districts alone exceed 600 we would like to begin by targeting a few in each county. The cost of each book and video kit will be $29.00.
If you would like to donate a Lighthouse Education Kit to a particular school or district, the NJLHS will send it to the school of your choice in your name.
Simply send your tax deductible check payable to NJLHS and mail to NJLHS, P.O. Box 332, Navesink, NJ 07752-0332. Be sure to indicate "NJLHS Educational Outreach" on your donation, identify the school or district of your choice and indicate the way in which you would like the gift card to read.
