Florida Lighthouse Association





Preserving, Restoring, Protecting & Defending Florida's Lighthouse Towers

WINSLOW LEWIS FOUNDERS SOCIETY


Founding donors made it possible for FLA to obtain the Florida specialty license plate “Visit Our Lights.”  This was a very significant step toward securing sustainable funding for lighthouse restoration efforts.  Revenue from the sale of specialty plates continues to provide restoration grants to Florida’s Lighthouses.  

In recognition of their leadership support these donors will be recognized as “Winslow Lewis Founders Society” in perpetuity.

Winslow Lewis was the visionary sea captain, engineer and inventor who built many early lighthouses in America.  The Winslow Lewis Society replaces the original “license plate campaign” recognition known as the 365 Club and $1,000 Challenge, which have been discontinued.

ST JOESPH POINT LIGHTHOUSE THANK YOU EVENT


In recognition on the significant impact Winslow Lewis donors have had on lighthouse restoration and preservation efforts they were invited to a special tour of the St. Joseph Point Lighthouse during the recent Lighthouse Congress.
