Milestone: Newblom’s ‘Lighthouse Fly Over’ labeled a winner

This one’s a “keeper.”

Sequim resident Bill Newblom saw his photo entry “Lighthouse Fly Over” take top honors out of a field of more than 50 entries to win the New Dungeness Light Station Association’s second photo and art contest.

Newblom’s picture will adorn bottles of the NDLSA’s second wine release, The Keeper, with a portion of all sales of the 2017 Sauvignon Blanc going to the association for maintenance and upkeep of the lighthouse.

The wine is produced exclusively for the NDLSA by Wind Rose Cellars in Sequim and is now available at Wind Rose and local retailers. The Keeper will be available for tasting and sale and NDLSA volunteers will be available to explain how to win a week living at the lighthouse, how to volunteer to help maintain the lighthouse and how to become a member of the NDLSA. Newblom will be on hand to sign labels.

The NDLSA and Wind Rose Cellars host a wine release party from 1-4 p.m. Saturday, April 20, at Wind Rose Cellars’ tasting room, 143 W. Washington St.

The name of the wine is in honor of the men and women who were charged with “keeping,” or making certain, that lights in all lighthouses remained lit at all times.

Since 1994, the New Dungeness Light Station Association has continuously maintained the iconic lighthouse, the keepers’ quarters, grounds and outbuildings. The NDLSA is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit association and does not receive any federal, state or local funds.
