The Friends of Plum and Pilot Islands (FOPPI) and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are announcing the completion of the $14,000 Plum Island fog-signal building roofing project, which a grant from the Raibrook Foundation, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and FOPPI donors made possible.
A few years ago, Jim Robinson of Shoreline Charters alerted FOPPI to a potential loss of shingles that he was able to see from the water. A team inspected the building from below and verified Robinson’s suspicion, but there were actually holes in the roof. Because of the roof’s extreme slope, FOPPI recruited a team of mountain climbers to apply a temporary tarp while it raised funds to repair the roof. Chewy & Teo Roofing and Siding of Baileys Harbor completed the project.
