Current Projects

The flag of the United States used to fly proudly over US Coast Guard Station, Patos Island. We do not know when the flag and pole were taken down, but from old photographs we know where the pole was located. We think it would be a dandy idea to return the flag and pole the island. The plan is for our volunteers and Docents to raise the flag whenever we are on island and able to open to light house.

Can you help us achieve this  goal with your donations? All donations are tax deductible. Please send donations, designated for the “FlagFund”, to Keepers of the Patos Light, PO Box 1967, Eastsound, WA 98245.
