Since Fall of 2016 we have been making changes to the south side of the lighthouse to fulfill a grant from SHPO to make the exterior of the house like it was in 1910 - small storage building moved to side of house, rear sidewalk installed, flowers planted around the house and new wood and wire fencing.
Wine Label Art Competition!
Kathy's artwork (center) was chosen as this year's 2017 winner! Kathy's beautiful watercolor art had the most $ votes at our final judging party. This art is featured on the 2016 Bowers Harbor Pinot Grigio available now online and at Bowers Harbor Vineyards. Money from each bottle sold goes directly to the Mission Point Lighthouse Friends for special restoration and educational projects at the lighthouse. Awesome job! We had 23 entries this year and it was tough competition, many fine artistic renderings.
We will announce the 3rd Annual Wine Label Art Competition January 2018. This is a fantastic fundraiser for the Mission Point Lighthouse.
