Plum Beach license plates set record

Sales of the Plum Beach Lighthouse license plate continue to set milestones.

Friends of Plum Beach Light house said they have received more than 7,000 applications for the plates.

They said it's now the most successful specialty license plate in Rhode Island history.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the plates is used to raise funds for the historic lighthouse.

Some of the funds were used to repaint Plum Beach Lighthouse three summers ago.
