Closed for 2020
White Shoal Light Historical Preservation Society’s Board of Directors met on Saturday, May 23rd to discuss the 2020 season at the light station. We know this will be a great disappointment to many, but the board unanimously voted to keep White Shoal closed to the public for the entirety of the 2020 season. The activities at our offshore lighthouse require tremendous advance logistical planning to be able to organize and safely host teams of volunteers, tour visitors, overnight guests and our isolation challenge winners. Our ability to perform this necessary advance logistical and safety measure planning becomes more complicated in light of the current Covid-19 situation. We will begin issuing refunds to all volunteers, guests, and isolation challenge winners in the order they were scheduled. Though we are missing the opportunity this year to celebrate our 110th anniversary season, we look forward to welcoming everyone back in 2021.
HELP PRESERVE WHITE SHOAL LIGHT
White Shoal Light Historical Preservation Society will be offering four volunteer opportunities in 2020. Due to the learning curve of 2019, we have decided to make some changes to our volunteer offerings for 2020. First, we will only be accepting a maximum of 6 volunteers per operation. Second, we are requiring a longer time commitment for each operation in order to give us more flexibility with weather. All volunteers will be required to complete a liability waiver as well as pay the $350 fee (per person) to cover the cost of the boat charter. This fee also includes all meals and accommodations during your stay at the light station.
