    Hi Nancy
    I am not sure if you ever got my email that I had sent back in Sept with some possible ideas for our 100th anniversary. I know that we have a specific weekend in mind for most of the celebration but wondered if we would do other things throughout the summer months so all residents (owners and renters ) could join in on the celebration. I would be happy to forward you my suggestions and willing to help where I can.

      Good morning Stephanie, Welcome to POW. I have met your husband but haven’t had the pleasure of meeting you. Send me your contact information at powoffice@att.net and I will add you to our volunteer list. The celebration is still in the beginning stages and someone will reach out to you. We have a wonderful Women’s Club that plans all kinds of events. You can check out our website for future information: pointowoodsct.com. Events don’t start happening around here until Memorial weekend.
      Hope to meet you soon.

    Nancy, I would like to volunteer for the celebration. I think that if possible,we could have more concerts on the beach. I have some ideas for additional groups that would be eager to play. Please advise as to anything else that I could give a hand to.

    Thanks, Don

    Can you please keep me on your mailing list?
    We plan to come.
    We now live in Maine.
    But my mother, who is 98 with every brain cell still, started to go to POW when she was a very young girl.
    So our family goes back a long way.
    My husbands grandmother lived on the POINT.
    And her husband was the one who built that cottage and the 2 on either side.
    So it is with great please to learn about the celebration you are planning.
    I love the barge idea with the fireworks!

  5. Hi There…
    I reached out a while back to find out what I need to do to reserve booth space at the craft fair Sunday July 28th.

    I am a resident and own Bilodeau $5 Boutique. I sell Paparazzi Jewelry & accessories.

    Please get back to me as soon as possible with the details.
    Thank you

  6. Sandy Quinlan Potholm says:

    Sorry no.
    We are no longer a resident of POW.
    My parents sold our cottage to my cousin Nancy and Joe Squillocote.

    • Point O'Woods says:

      Hi Sandy, unfortunately this event is for property owners and their guests, and renters only. The guard will be stopping everyone coming into POW if there isn’t a resident sticker on the car.

    Paula and I would like to extend an invitation to Sandy and her family to join the celebration, as our guests. As long-time residents of POW, they should be warmly welcomed. This is a celebration of longevity and, as such, they – as much as anyone – should be included in the festivities.

    Oh Ken and Paula!
    That is so kind of you to think of us.
