Dear Friends of Seguin Island Light Station (FOSILS) and visitors,  

We hope this letter finds you well as we look forward to another summer in the shadow of Seguin Light Station. As you look out to the island this summer, please consider what it takes to keep this island available to visitors throughout the summer season.   This year the Friends of Seguin Island Light Station has embarked on an aggressive plan that will improve Seguin for generations to come. Our focus is on improving the accessibility of the island, particularly the safety of our visitors.

To that end we have identified key projects to be undertaken:
1) Improve the sanitation system for our visitors – Complete.
2) Replacement of the deteriorating rail system on the parapet of the light tower. (Click for status)
3) Install a dock system for visitors in lieu of beach landings
4) Rebuild the tramway to a functional state.
5) Replace the keepers house window to preserve the building

There are many smaller projects associated with our plan and your help is needed. Your contribution can come in many forms:
a. Direct contribution to our mailing address, Venmo, or on our web site.
b. Initiating a corporate donation.
b. Establishing a matching gift program.
c. A memorial contribution.
d. One of the board members would love to meet with you personally to discuss a benefactor contribution. Please call.

We are currently working to raise money to replace our parapet railing (see pictures below). It is over 100 years old and unsafe for visitors this summer.

Thank you again and enjoy your summer.
