EASTHAM, Mass., May 7, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Nauset Light Preservation Society (NLPS), an all-volunteer organization, is pleased to announce that work has begun to repaint the historic Nauset Lighthouse. Cape Cod Potato Chips, which operates a manufacturing plant in Hyannis and is part of the Snyder's-Lance family of snack brands, is sponsoring the restoration project.

The scope of the project includes cleaning the tower and removing rust, caulking around the lantern room windows, and painting the exterior of the tower with the black, red and white of the existing color scheme. Work is scheduled for completion by the end of May — just in time for the start of the busy summer season when more than 6,000 people visit the iconic lighthouse.

"We are grateful that Cape Cod Potato Chips and Snyder's-Lance is sponsoring the painting of the Nauset Lighthouse," said David Gray, President, Nauset Light Preservation Society. "The generous donations of individuals and businesses that operate within our community allow us to maintain Eastham's most famous historic structure." 

The International Chimney Corporation, the same company hired to move the Nauset Light in 1996, has been contracted to perform the repainting project. The company has extensive experience painting lighthouses, having recently painted ten lighthouses along the East Coast, the Great Lakes, and California. The International Chimney Corporation was hired previously to paint the Nauset Light and has intimate knowledge of the unique structure and the environment in which it lives.

Cape Cod Potato Chips has been a supporter of the Nauset Light for many years, with the iconic landmark featured on every bag of the kettle-cooked chips.

"The Nauset Lighthouse is part of the fabric of the Cape Cod community, and it means a lot to us and our employees that we're able to help preserve this piece of our heritage," said Jeff Newell, Senior Process Specialist, Cape Cod Potato Chips. "In addition to providing funding, we're also planning to work with the NLPS to coordinate volunteer opportunities so that we can remain involved in ongoing lighthouse maintenance projects."

Cape Cod Potato Chips has called Hyannis home for more than 30 years. Under the Snyder's-Lance umbrella, Cape Cod Potato Chips supports a number of local community organizations including Children's Cove, JDRF New England Chapter, Cape Cod Child Development and Cape Cod Toys for Tots.

The Nauset Light, with its distinctive black, red and white coloring, is operated and maintained by the NLPS. The Nauset Light is open for tours on Sundays in May through October, and also on Wednesdays during July and August.  The NLPS, a non-profit organization, also pays for all exhibits and educational materials developed as part of its effort to interpret the lighthouse to the public.
