Sally Hamilton of the Friends of Pemaquid Point Lighthouse was presented with a ALF Len Hadley Volunteer Award during the American Lighthouse Foundation’s annual Lighthouse Gala, which was held at the Nonantum Resort in Kennebunkport, Maine, on April 28, 2019.
Each year, the Friends of Pemaquid Point Lighthouse manage the most demanding public access program within the American Lighthouse Foundation. The chapter staffs the 1835 Pemaquid Point Lighthouse seven days a week mid-May until Columbus Day each season.
Such a tremendous commitment requires a host of dedicated volunteers, as you can imagine. Sally Hamilton is one of these special individuals who goes above and beyond by giving of her time and talents at Pemaquid Point Light.
Sally has been a very enthusiastic volunteer ever since she came onboard with the Friends of Pemaquid Point Lighthouse (FPPL). She has taken quickly to the information and history of our beloved lighthouse and interacts very well with all the visitors that come to climb the tower. Sally’s knowledge of the area, her bubbly personality and ease with people make her an excellent docent to represent FPPL.
Sally held on and was remarkable with her schedule through very difficult times as her husband became very ill, went through trips to E.R., hospital stays, rigorous treatments, and heartache before his passing this past fall. She was still amazingly reliable and committed to the best of her ability throughout the ordeal. She is, without a doubt, an asset and valuable member of our chapter, and very deserving of this award of recognition.
We are pleased to honor Sally Hamilton with a 2019 Len Hadley Volunteer Award!
