Two weekends ago, nearly 30 solar-powered lighthouses decorated by local artists and sponsored by local businesses were installed throughout the village business district. In October, the pieces will be auctioned off, with proceeds split three ways between the artists, the Chamber of Commerce, and a charity.

The major sponsors of this year’s event are Stewart’s Shops of Saratoga and Markertek of Saugerties, both of whom contributed $1,500 as a “Shining Light” level supporter. It’s the third year for Stewart’s and the second for Markertek as top-tier benefactors. Precision Flow Technologies of Saugerties gave $850 towards the event – the “Lighthouse Keeper” level – also participating at a substantial level for the third time. The remaining 27 sponsors, the “Lighthouse Trail” level, are comprised of a diverse group of professionals, businesses and local philanthropists, who chipped in $450 if they were Chamber members, or $550 if not, to sustain the increasingly popular event.
