The Friends of Plum and Pilot Island are eyeing a busy summer that involves making their way to the south end of Death’s Door. The Pilot Island light will be receiving a makeover in the form of a new metal roof, downspouts, and even new gutters. These repairs will be done once the organization is finished with its planned work at the Plum Island Light. FOPPI board member Paul Schumacher says this is just the beginning for the next two years.
Schumacher says the biggest hurdle in accomplishing tasks last year was the noticeable decrease in volunteer turnout. He looks forward to more people being able to pitch in this summer.
