Formation: Round Island Lighthouse Preservation Society was formed in 2009 as a non-profit organization to help aid the preservation and restoration efforts at historic Round Island Lighthouse. We also assist with the Annual Open House at the Lighthouse.
Members of the Board: These five members of the society make up the board of directors and have one thing in common. Each of them in their life have been associated with Freeland Boy Scout Troop 323. Matt McMullen, the society's Chairperson, is an Assistant Scoutmaster and an Eagle Scout. Nathan Neuenfeldt was a member of Troop 323 and is also an Eagle Scout. Brad Mrozinski, Assistant Chairperson, is a volunteer for the troop. Pat Eckenstahler is the society's secretary. Pat and her husband, Chuck Eckenstahler, won a trip with the Freeland Boy Scouts at a fundraiser in Alpena in 1995. This allowed them to help the scouts with their annual cleaning trip of the lighthouse the following summer.
