I love “things” that can tell stories, teach us, and inspire us. People, artifacts, and places can do that. The Point Lookout Historical Society holds copies of past Point Lookout journals that were in print even before the Community Outlook, which was first published in 1948. Reading through these old copies has been one of the ways that I have learned about this place.
This interest in history and the historical record is why the Point Lookout Historical Society is bringing The Community Outlook into the fold of their other preservation activities and why I have decided to serve as editor. It is not just a paper. It is, in my opinion, one of the most tangible pieces of Point Lookout history that we have, where readers of all ages (present and future) can glean a profound understanding of this place.
