Thank You Marc & Cyndy Campbell for your Generous Donation
It's a VERY good for the Nottawasaga Lighthouse. We received a donation of $50,000.00 from Marc and Cyndy Campbell which will allow us to complete the first phase of the restoration. The plan is to shrink wrap the structure this fall to ensure that it is protected from the elements over the winter. Hopefully this will slow down, even stop further deterioration. We then have the winter to continue our fundraising and make plans for part two of the restoration.
