Park Day Volunteers at Point Lookout State Park

Marylanders can help preserve and maintain historic Civil War sites during the Civil War Trust’s annual Park Day event April 7.

Volunteers are needed at Point Lookout State Park in St. Mary’s County to work on the Historic Civil War Fort #3 and Prison Pen area from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Needs include general maintenance of the fort and surrounding area.

Every year, community leaders, history buffs and preservationists join forces to help enhance and restore numerous locations during this nationwide event.

Additional locations in Maryland include Antietam National Battlefield, Fort Washington Park and Monocacy National Battlefield.

For more information about Park Day at Point Lookout State Park, please contact Bob Crickenberger of the Friends of Point Lookout at 301-876-5688 or crickenberger@comcast.net.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
