Bodie Island Lighthouse

In 2005 Jeld-Wen windows and doors began a lighthouse restoration initiative by taking nominations of towers that needed new windows and doors. The public could then vote on the lighthouse they consider being the lighthouse that would most benefit from this award. This year, out of 49 nominees, Bodie Island Lighthouse is one of the 12 finalists. If (when) our NC tower wins, it will receive 8 windows and one door that are reproductions of the originals. Funding for the restoration of Bodie Light was pulled from the budget in December 2007. Monies for its restoration will be requested again, but it has been passed over several years and there is no guarantee that it will be passed this year. Any help from other agencies and companies will be welcome to lessen the $2.8 million dollar project and may better the chances of getting funds for Bodie this year.


Please go to the site below and cast your vote...feel free to pass it along to friends!
