Major restoration of the light station is needed requiring funding from grants, donations, and the town.

The exterior of the tower has been painted.
Two companies have completed a structural analysis of the building and tower and will be submitting reports.
Committee members removed the vines and shrubbery covering the oil house.
The annex roof has been re-shingled.

Encapsulating and painting the lead paint areas on the first floor of the Sailors' Museum has been completed. It is hoped that funding will be obtained by the fall so that the painters can return to paint the second floor. The walls of the entry room and one wall of the adjoining room have been painted by members of the committee.

A CAP Assessment (Collections Assessment for Preservation Program) completed in early April evaluated both the building and the collection of artifacts.
