Descendants of Point Lookout Org. - 2010 Pilgrimage

Greetings DOPL Members,

If you’ve never been to DOPL’s Annual Pilgrimage you should plan to attend. Members come from all over to converge at Point Lookout, MD each year. They come to mourn, pay homage to their Confederate Ancestors and walk where they walked. We will never know what they suffered, but time and again those who attend the Pilgrimage say they will forever feel closer to those who gave so much.

Friday October 8th

We begin with our Annual Descendants Meeting and dinner Friday October 8th at Ridge American Legion 13390 Point Lookout Rd.

Dinner will be at 6:00 pm The cost will be $15.00 ~ children under eight eat free. The menu is chicken, roast beef, roll, mashed potatoes, green beans, salad, and drink. We need to know how many members will be attending to allow us to plan the meal properly. Please contact us as soon as possible so we can get a head count ... Email Dinner Reservations

This year our speaker will be Rev. Fr. Alister Anderson. I know he will have your Confederate blood flowing fast through your veins with a heart pounding delivery. The program will be provided by DOPL member Al Perry.

Saturday October 9th

The SCV Vincent Camalier Camp 1359 Memorial Service will start 11:00 am at the cemetery.

Our Ceremony will begin 1:30 pm at Confederate Memorial Park . This year we are honored to have our very own DOPL member Rev. W. Herman White from beautiful High Point N.C. He will deliver a fiery message sure to get everyone fired up! We look forward to seeing you there. Stacy Harris will be in charge of DOPL’s Lee’s Miserables this year. We hear tell there might be a skit in the works, you never know :o)

Members and friends have been staying here for years so make your reservations now to ensure you get your room.. We have a group rate of $68.00 this year. Their regular rate is $94.99 so this is a good saving’s. Tell them you are with the Descendants of Point Lookout Org. There are many area restaurants if you want to come early and stay late and fellowship with other members. I normally leave on Sunday after a last minute visit to the Park to say goodbye until next year.

Being at Point Lookout is something you must experience for yourself. Until you go, you never know what you’re missing, however once you go, you’ll want to come back every year.
