Some of you may recall the many photos and stories of life at Mt. Desert Rock Lighthouse in Maine that have been shared with us by Shirley Robinson in past issues of Lighthouse Digest. Many of her old photos will eventually go on display in the Museum of Lighthouse History in Wells, Maine.
Shirley, now retired, lives in Lake Havasu City, AZ and is a member of the Lake Havasu Lighthouse Club, which has built wonderful replicas of West Quoddy, Cape Hatteras, Buffalo, Split Rock and Currituck lighthouses on the lake. Other lighthouse replicas planned are Head Harbour, Wood End, Alcatraz, Montauk and Boston.
However, Shirley is now raising money for a replica of her beloved Mt. Desert Rock Lighthouse that she is sponsoring to be built on the lake and she is still short on the funds needed to build one. Lighthouse Digest Magazine has sent her donation to help out with this project. If you would also like to help Shirley, you can make a donation
of any amount payable to the Lake Havasu Lighthouse Club and sent to Shirley Robinson, 2885 Papeete Dr., Lake Havasu City, AZ 96404. To learn more about the Lake Havasu Lighthouse Club go to www.lh-lighthouseclub.org.
