A Beautiful and Lasting Way to Support Presque Isle’s Historical Treasures
If you enjoy bringing your family and friends to the Presque Isle Lighthouses and 1905 Keeper’s House, we hope you will join our Holiday Amaryllis Bulb Sales Team. The Presque Isle Township Museum Society is in great need of additional funds to sustain our restoration, maintenance and collection efforts. This fundraiser is important to sustaining our future, so the more volunteers we have on board to help sell the bulbs, the better!
If you cannot help sell bulbs, please help support the Presque Isle Township Museum Society’s (PITMS) efforts by purchasing bulbs for your home, and consider giving them to your family, friends, teachers, and clients as well.
The Amaryllis’ blooms are so stunning and last 6-8 weeks. If cared for properly, they can be replanted again next year. Each bulb will come packaged in a gift box with a gift card indicating that proceeds from the purchase helps support the Presque Isle Lighthouses and 1905 Keeper’s House, along with lighthouse wrapping paper!
All bulbs are of top quality and guaranteed to grow. If for any reason the purchaser is not satisfied, they can contact our supplier and they will be offered their choice of a replacement, credit or full refund.
The following bulbs will be available for sale:

If you would like to help sell bulbs, contact PITMS Vice President Katie Wolf at (989)277-3543, or send her an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Selling the bulbs is easy. Each volunteer will be given a full-color order sheet with lovely photos of the bulbs in bloom. Customers pay by cash or check when placing the order.
You may contact any PITMS board member to purchase the Holiday Amaryllis bulbs as well. They also will be sold at the 1905 Keeper’s House during the weekends of October 7 & 8, noon to 3 pm (Lake Huron Discovery Tour), and October 14 & 15, noon – 3 pm (Autumn Lights).

And remember, a membership to the Presque Isle Township Museum Society also makes a lovely and lasting gift!
