Friends And Kudos

Maine Lighthouse Trust
Sean Murphy, one of FOWIL’s original founders and a former Vice President of FOWIL, created the Maine Lighthouse Trust in 2022. The MLT supports lighthouse preservation and education by rewarding annual grants funded by the proceeds generated by the Maine Lighthouse license plate.
