Around the Point - Newsletter
Happy New Year! Welcome to Around the Point, the Town of West Point’s official newsletter. 2023 was an exciting time in our town with the launch of a new website, increased attendance at events, the relocation of our police department to improved facilities, the addition of a kayak rental kiosk at West Point Creek, our first National Night Out, and much more. In addition to our social media channels and new user-friendly website, this newsletter is another tool to keep you better informed about events and happenings around West Point and with Town Council.
