The Portland Breakwater Light in Portland, Maine was restored through the joint efforts of The Lighthouse Preservation Society and the South Portland/Cape Elizabeth Rotary Club. The Society approached the Rotary Club to see if they would take on the light's restoration as a service project. They agreed, and began raising funds locally, which were then matched with a federal grant that the Society successfully wrote.

The Lighthouse Preservation Society wishes to invite you to join us in our important work to rescue America’s endangered lighthouses.  We are the recipient of a Presidential Achievement Award from the federal government for our effective efforts to save America’s lighthouses.  When you join, you’ll receive one of our gift items, and can request our catalog, lighthouse guides, and other publications.  You’ll also have the satisfaction of supporting the preservation of America’s lighthouses.  Together, with your help, we can “keep the lights shining”!
