The Point Lookout Community Church is on the grounds of the original U.S Life Saving/Coast Guard Station. The flag tower which is pictured, is the original flag tower and is over 100 years old.
It is in desperate need of repair and since it is of historic importance to the community of Point Lookout, we are asking for donations from our businesses, residents and friends. We need to raise $8,500 for the repairs and our goal is to reach that by April 1st so work can be started and completed by June 14th which is Flag Day! If we do not reach the desired amount the flag tower will have to be taken down.
We have started a GO FUND ME site and the link is https://www.gofundme.com/6rvq9pqs
If you prefer to mail a check please make the check out to the Point Lookout Civic Association and put FLAGTOWER in the memo section of the check and mail it to:
C/O Flag Tower
P.O. Box 900
Point Lookout, NY 11569.
Knowing how generous our wonderful town can be when help is needed, I am sure we can achieve our goal by the target date of April 1st.
Please be as generous as your means allow.
Thank you in advance,
Point Lookout Civic Association
