NORTH KINGSTOWN â The Plum Beach Lighthouse license plate, with its handsome rendering of the historic fireplug-style beacon, has been voted the first runner-up in a national contest sponsored by the Automobile License Plate Collectors Association.
Dave Zapatka, president of Friends of Plum Beach Lighthouse, says the plate was nominated in early March and by mid-April he was informed of the honor.
âIt was the best finish for a specialty plate,â he notes. âThere had never been one in the top five.â
