The U.S. Lighthouse Society’s Lighthouse Passport Program provides enthusiasts the opportunity to help preserve lighthouses as well as a wonderful way to keep a pictorial history of their lighthouse adventures. Small donations are made by passport holders for the stamps. The lighthouse passports can be bought through the U.S. Lighthouse Society website and at many participating locations.
Skip Sherwood, a retired college professor, and his wife, Mary Lee, have led many of the U.S. Lighthouse Society’s domestic and international tours. Skip is also the director of the Lighthouse Passport Program. Scott Walbert lives in Pennsylvania and is one of the hall of fame lighthouse passport stamp collectors, and he and his wife Diane also volunteer and do a lot of the behind the scenes work to keep the passport program going.
