House of Representatives Mike Michaud and Chris Collins have requested that President Obama decree August 7 in Perpetuity as National Lighthouse Day. A formal Congressional request has been sent to the White House, Maine's Congressman Michaud previously had circulated a letter among House representatives to obtain as many House signatures as possible.
Either email the White House at whitehouse.gov/contact or call at 202-456-1111 or 202-456-1414 ASAP requesting President Obama make August 7 in Perpetuity as National Lighthouse Day. Phone calls to the White House can be made from 9a.m.-5p.m. EST.
If the measure passes, the proposed National Lighthouse Day will coincide with the 225th anniversary of the federalization of America's lighthouses.
