Consider joining the “Wickie” Circle, a special group of contributors. A “Wickie” is a nickname associated with lighthouse keepers because one of their jobs was to trim the wick on the lighthouse lamp so it wouldn’t smoke and create a sooty film on the lighthouse lens.
A “Wickie” pledges a minimum annual gift of $300 to support the operations of The Grand Traverse Lighthouse Museum. This special group is invited to exclusive events and special considerations.
Thank you for your support!
