North Kingstown RI 02852 -Plum Beach License Plate -It keeps on Giving!
Yes, the license plate is in contention for a National Award. In RI we are fortunate to have so many who care and raise funds for the preservation of historic landmarks which the Plum Beach Lighthouse is one. Situated in Narragansett Bay, it greets all travelers over the Jamestown bridge who love and admire the RI waterfront in all its pristine presence. So at this juncture of continued fundraising ($72,000 raised and 3650 plates issued so far), the Plum Beach License Plate itself has been selected one of the top national finalists for 'best license plate designs' for 2010. This annual contest is sponsored by the Automobile License Plate Collectors Association. This is a honor for all those who worked on this license plate project the past two years - but more so for the restoration that subsequently resulted of the Plum Beach lighthouse.
This effort to bring the Plum Beach lighthouse back to its original 'being' has been due to the Plum Beach license plate sales. My past blog posts on the plum beach license plate and the rally for funds to support this restoration effort have highlighted this local effort. Plum Beach is a wonderful waterfront North Kingstown RI community of homes on Narragansett Bay.
Truthfully, I have received dozens of calls because of the blog posts on how RI residents can buy one of the Plum Beach license plates! I don't have anything to do with the orders! The Plum Beach license plates are still available and must be ordered through the Friends of Plum Beach Lighthouse and applications are available at www.pblplate.org The plates sell for $41.50 per set of two and $20 from each sale goes directly into the Plum Beach lighthouse maintenance fund. Unlike other specialty plates available through the registry, there are no additional ongoing charges after the initial sale of the plate to you.
So yes, the license plate winner will be announced the first week of April. Anxiously, all involved with this endeavor wait for the results but never mind, everyone is thrilled with the success so far for the Plum Beach RI license plate.
