Point Lookout Lighthouse Preservation Society (PLLPS), Inc.
October 24-25, 2008PLLPS once again teamed with the Kiwanis of St. Mary's County to perform the Spirits of Point Lookout Lighthouse. The weather on Friday night was chilly with a strong breeze. Saturday night was almost as cold, but with the added obstacle of rain showers and wind. A special thank you to all the volunteers who helped to put on the show! See the pictures that follow for hi-lites from the show. Also, we have included an EVP clip provided by Keith Springer; the clip was captured during the walking tour of Spirits of Point Lookout, but we wanted to include the clip so that Spirits participants could listen for themselves!

The following audio clip was provided by Keith Springer. The clip was captured at 8:04 pm on October 25, 2008, just after the Spirits walking tour began. The voice was recorded on the road to Fort Lincoln, just as the guide was telling the group to stay close and follow him. The voice apparently answers the guide and was not heard until the recording was reviewed later. Perhaps we had an unpaid participant on the 8 o'clock tour?
