                                                        OUTREACH EVENTS for 2018

       We will again be participating in some outreach events this year….getting the word out about the


 New Jersey Lighthouse Society.  A few of the events we usually attend have been cancelled for this


 year, so we are adding some events in the Southern part of the state, where we haven’t been before.


 We will need volunteers to help staff our display table, sell ways and means items, represent the


 Society, and interact with visitors.  Although most of the events are outdoor activities, we have a


 pop-up tent so you won’t be sitting in the direct sun!  We would like to have at least 2 people at all


 times, so you can visit the event yourself, get something to eat, etc.  The more volunteers we get for


 each event, the less time you will have to sit at the table!  The following events are tentatively


 scheduled…if we do not get enough volunteers, we will not be able to participate.  (You will see 2


 events scheduled for May 19-----if we do not get enough people to staff both events, we will be


 cancelling “Ocean Fun Days”, as we really want to be able to sell our Ways & Means items).  If you


 cannot attend for the entire event, please list what time you would be available.  Set-up for these


 events is usually 1 to 2 hours before the start time, so participants can park close to unload their car.


 Please consider helping us out…. why not bring a friend or family member to “work” with you?


 Contact Communityoutreach@njlhs.org with your name, phone number, email address, which event,

   Social Networking Update


As always, a friendly reminder to check out the Society’s presence on Facebook & Twitter!  While you’re at it, please recommend that others become our “fans” on Facebook.  We’re easy to find: either search the Society name in the search bar on Facebook, or navigate to www.facebook.com/njlhs.  I’m happy to report that, as of this writing, MORE THAN 1058 people “like” our page as of this writing.  If you’re not of these many “fans” yet, just look us up and “like us” today.  Also let me know if you have a favorite lighthouse or lighthouse organization or interest group page that we should “like” on the NJLHS page.  We’ve been pleased to share some great updates recently from the folks at the Absecon Lighthouse.

 

Also, as a time saving device, our Facebook page so that all of the content posted automatically publishes on the NJLHS account on Twitter. You may find us at www.twitter.com/njlhs or on Twitter by typing out our Twitter “handle”: @njlhs in the Twitter search field.  You can now keep up to date via your smartphone, iPad/tablet, and (of course) your notebook or desktop computer.

 

The Society also continues to publish notices of our General Membership Meetings to more than 50 media venues (newspapers/radio/websites) throughout the state.  However, we are always looking to add outlets to our media list.  It seems that, as soon as we add an outlet to the list that, due to continued budgetary cutbacks at various media outlets, we lose one or two contacts on our media list.  In light of this reality, please share with me contact info (email address) for any media outlets that you feel would like to receive our media notices.  These could include newspaper, radio, TV, or web-based resources.  I’ll be happy to add anyone to our media distribution list.

 

Thanks so much everyone…and keep the lights shining!
