I will be attending the 149th Gettysburg Battle Reenactment as Julio Zangroniz’s apprentice. This is quite an opportunity to watch the master work in one of the most famous events of reenacting. I look forward to this, and want to thank Andrea Dimartino and the others of the Gettysburg Anniversary Committee. Their fine work and worthy charitable efforts are to be commended.
The Gettysburg Anniversary Committee will be supporting five very worthy organizations with the proceeds from the event.
The Adams County Historical Society, located in Schmucker Hall on the Lutheran Seminary campus, plays a significant role in preserving Adams County History and offering research opportunities for visitors, students and historians utilizing paid and volunteer staff.
Main Street Gettysburg is a non-profit organization committed to the preservation and revitalization of historic Gettysburg for the benefit of the citizens, businesses and visitors. In addition to preparing for the Gettysburg Sesquicentennial Celebration, two of their projects have included the David Wills House and the Steinwehr Avenue Revitalization Program.
The mission of Hope For The Warrior is to enhance the quality of life for US service members nationwide and their families who have been adversely affected by injury or death. Several service members involved in the program visited the Patriotic Area at this year’s event. The Patriotic Tent was staffed by community members with donations being received for the program and appreciation banners being signed and sent to our combat troops in the Middle East.
Land Conservancy of Adams County is a member supported nonprofit land trust with over 600 members and the noble mission of preserving the rural lands and character of Adams County. The Conservancy holds over 95 easements covering over 6,000 acres.
