Portland, Maine— On what must have been one of the coldest days of the year, with wind gusts blowing up to 20 miles per hour, brave artists and sponsors of Hannaford’s Lighthouses on Parade delivered the first completed lighthouses to get them ready for photography for the upcoming Lighthouses on Parade event.
Lighthouse Depot is proud to be a sponsor of one of the ten-foot lighthouses for the program that will benefit a number of Maine charities as well as the American Lighthouse Foundation.
“Undercover Lighthouse,” as the Lighthouse Depot lighthouse is named, is a secret agent, of sorts, who has searched the world over to find lighthouse collectibles and gifts. With his Lighthouses of Maine map to guide him, “Undercover Lighthouse” has discovered that the largest collection of lighthouse gifts and collectibles are at Lighthouse Depot.
“Undercover Lighthouse” is dressed in a brown trench coat and his pants and neck collar are made from the covers of past issues of the Lighthouse Depot Catalog. Sporting a red “power” tie, dark sunglasses, handle-bar mustache, Sherlock Holmes style hat, and a replica of the U. S. Lighthouse Service Lighthouse Depot watchman’s badge, he is truly a force to be reckoned with as he leads the way to show the other lighthouses from Lighthouses on Parade where to find lighthouse gifts and collectibles.
