Sylvia Weinstein Craft

Our Oyster Pointer staff of writers, photographers, design team and sales representatives feel privileged to have the opportunity to work with you, our advertisers, our columnists and our readers in helping to guide our feature publication toward continuing excellence.

In spite of the 2020 health issues, our readership increased, in part because of our supportive following and because we have instituted direct mailing to Newport News areas with dense populations. And those of you who have received Oyster Pointer by mail, have been receptive and helpful by letting us know you were happy and pleasantly surprised to have it delivered to your home mailboxes.

We strive to bring you good news – and only good news. We have learned about new businesses, and we have re-visited friends about whom we wrote several years ago, discovering their advancements and improvements and sharing them with you, our readers. Each issue gives us a chance to smile, see a familiar face or two, and learn about the products and services of the advertisers who make it possible for us to continue bringing good news to you.

Oyster Pointer is exciting and fun for us, and we are privileged to bring to you new and updated information about our business community. THANK YOU for the privilege of serving you. As we move into our 35th year of continuous publishing, we wish you and your families the very best for the New Year. Here’s to 2021 and all the possibilities it holds.
