Lighthouse Kids with Founder Sue Reynolds Thursday Oct. 2 at 7pm

The Rye Public Library and Rye Historical Society jointly present Lighthouse Kids Founder Sue Reynolds with an illustrated program on Thursday, October 2, at 7:00 pm. In 2001, Sue Reynolds was teaching 7th grade in North Hampton, where Community Service was the Friday afternoon activity.  While doing a beach clean-up, Sue pointed to the lighthouse and explained its plight. Lighthouse Kids was formed and evolved into a nonprofit organization that works with the state of New Hampshire, owner of the property.  Students, parents and community members have been extremely instrumental in the growth and development of Lighthouse Kids and the preservation of White Island Lighthouse Station, New Hampshire’s only off-shore lighthouse, and part of the Rye Historic District.  There has been a lighthouse on White Island since 1820, the present structure being built in 1859.  The lighthouse was operated by lighthouse keepers, the United States Lighthouse Service, and the Coast Guard, until it was automated in 1986.  The Coast Guard continues to maintain the light as a navigational aid, but the upkeep of the island and structures are now the responsibility of the Division of Parks and Recreation of the New Hampshire Department of Resources and Economic Development.  As the island is not a major tourist attraction, very little money is available for support, and the lighthouse and auxiliary structures on the island started to fall into disrepair.
