preferably on a regular schedule. will train!
clean up - everyone who visits the lighthouse is
asked to pick up beach debris that is counted twice a year
- in april (earth day) and in september (get the drift
and bag it). scout and other youth groups are encouraged
to sign up for the spring or fall work session. minimum
4 people needed.
help us set up or
clean up and maybe do a job in between - and get our
"volunteer" ticket rate during some events. we celebrate the summer annually with a barbecue on july 4th and our clambake in august. both events sell out every year without fail! after that there's the much anticipated seal tours, the new year's day picnic, and more! check out our calendar of events!

we have chairs, rockers, tables and bookcases that need
spiffing up. some projects are more intricate than others,
so we can use all skill levels.

us newspaper and magazine articles that mention the lighthouse
or rose island (include name of paper and date of publication)
scanning photographs & articles - we've got historic
as well as recent photos, plus news articles to scan and

don't already know how to use the equipment. will train
someone who can work on a regular schedule (i.e., one afternoon
