Are you a member of the 40 + 3 Club?  You can be!!!  
  Back in 1997 the Board of Directors decided to designate all the lighthouses and lightships in Maryland and Virginia along with the ones in the lower portion of Delaware as the ones of our Chapter's primary interest. Guess what? There are 40 lighthouses in this area. Guess what, again? There are 3 lightships docked in this area. Voilá.... 40 + 3.

Have you seen them all? If you have and you are a member of the Chapter, you are a member of the 40 + 3 club. Just let me know. We'll take your word on it. Only you'll know if you have REALLY seen them and I'm betting you'll get lumps of coal for your birthday if you fib.  

  When you send me the information, we'll put you on the membership list.  Each member of the 40+3 club will receive one of these patches to honor their achievement. Your name will be published in the newsletter and we are hoping to give some further recognition later. Any ideas???

Let's have fun with this!!!
