The Juneau Lighthouse Association would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who assisted in the success of the 2003 Quilt Raffle that benefited Five Finger Lighthouse.
The Capital City Quilters Guild created a beautiful wall quilt that depicted the original Five Finger Lighthouse in the center, surrounded by Southeast Alaska maritime and marine life scenes. Colorful signal flags bordered the quilt and spelled out "Five Finger Lighthouse - March 1902". The drawing took place Nov. 30 at the Juneau Public Market. Gail Marvin of Juneau (who was actually present) was the lucky winner of this great quilt.
We would like to especially thank the Bear's Lair, Imagination Station, Rain Tree Quilting, Rainbow Foods and Hearthside Books for selling raffle tickets; Spencer Realty for allowing us to display the quilt in the window of the Senate Building all summer long; local merchants A&P Market, Safeway, Nugget Mall and Mendenhall Mall for allowing us to set up our booth and display the quilt; local radio stations KTOO and KINY for helping us get the word out; and Alaska Litho for printing the raffle tickets and getting them to us so timely.
A warm thank you to the volunteers who helped sell the tickets. Thanks to Peter Metcalfe for booth space and a forum to draw the lucky name at the Juneau Public Market.
And finally, thank you to the communities of Southeast Alaska for your support and assistance in helping us preserve Five Finger Lighthouse.
