The St. Augustine Lighthouse & Maritime Museum is excited to announce The Beacon Society:  a new volunteer service group that will help promote the Museum’s non-profit mission through fundraising, advocacy, and volunteering. This group of philanthropic and service-minded individuals is replacing two of our previously active support groups called The Tower Club and The Guild. With a resurgence of interest to give back to the Lighthouse in a more donor-centric way, we have decided to revamp both of these groups and create The Beacon Society.

The Beacon Society primarily exists to support Lighthouse fundraising efforts and serve as an ambassador of the St. Augustine Lighthouse through service to the community. We are currently working on a few fundraisers including a special “Dark of the Moon” tour with light refreshments plus beer and wine as well as an educational bus trip to other lighthouses. The Society will continue to support existing events like our annual Luminary Night and Nightfest.

If you have always wanted to be involved at the St. Augustine Lighthouse & Maritime Museum but don’t necessarily have the time during the day to volunteer, this may be for you! We will have an informational membership social on June 15th at 6:30 p.m. at OddBirds located at 33 Charlotte Street.

For questions or general information about joining, call Michelle Adams at (904) 829-0745.
