The Town of Saugeen Shores is working with the Municipal Heritage Committee in making sure that the restoration will follow the rules that go with the Historical Designation.
Thanks to Derrick Seaman and his staff from Seaman & Sons Builders who have secured the west side of the Range Light to help protect it for the winter. The restoration work to be done will be to replace the plywood, cedar shingles, window, door repair, ventilation and paint. The work is estimated to cost between $75,000 and $100,000.
The Marine Heritage Society along with the Propellor Club with the help of other Community Groups are hoping to raise upwards of $20,000 by planning some unique events for next spring as COVID 19 allows.
In 2021 we will be Celebrating our 20th year of offering Tours to Chantry Island and our 10th year for the Marine Heritage Festival. We are accepting cheques or money orders and will provide a tax receipt for donations of $20.00 or more. Send them to Marine Heritage Range Light Fund, 86 Saugeen St, Southampton ON N0H 2L0 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
