The Bullfrog Light Company is helping us raise money for the restoration of the lighthouse by granting the Charlevoix Keeper of the Light Committee exclusive rights to sell two additional color versions of their popular South Pier Light Candle. This candle sports the beautiful white on navy pen and ink artwork of Charlevoix native Tim Gibbons of Traverse City, son of Society member Marilyn Gibbons and the late Michael Gibbons. It is available in the Bullfrog Outlet Store, the Harsha House Museum store, as well as other retail shops.
The new color versions, available only at the Harsha House, are equally striking. One is white, allowing the pre-1968 red version of the lighthouse to be dramatically emblazoned on the surface. The other is light blue, showing off the lighthouse in its post-1968 white apparel. Stop in to look at the candles and choose your favorite hue. Price: $18. The Historical Society is keeping a record of the most popular color; it is hoped that perhaps candle sales will help resolve the never-ending debate of whether the most popular lighthouse color is red or white. Those who grew up and/or lived with it before 1968 definitely prefer red. Those who have known it only since 1968 can visualize it in no other hue than white.
