Rock the Tower Fundraiser 2020With the high water levels in Lake Superior, we are again faced with the need to add additional rocks around the base of the lighthouse. These water levels are expected to remain high for the next few years. The rocks around the tower and along the boardwalk are settling and need to be stabilized. This project is scheduled to start in 2021 (contractor's availability and weather permitting), will cost approximately $40,000, and will add another layer of stone directly around the lighthouse. All total, it will add an additional 300-350 tons of stone. Maintaining this protective base has become our highest priority in preserving Crisp Point. We are asking for your help to Rock the Tower! Our goal is to raise as much of the estimated project cost as possible so that we have funds remaining in our accounts to do a tower exterior restoration project again in the near future. Those who contribute at least $75 will receive a limited-edition t-shirt. Those who contribute at least $150 will receive a limited-edition sweatshirt and those who contribute $200 or more will receive both. These items will only be available to donors to this project and they will not be sold after this fundraiser is over. We will order the items in batches about a month apart, so please allow at least a month for your item(s) to arrive. This fundraiser will end on December 31, 2020.
