All of us at the Gettysburg Hotel would like to recognize those who have been affected by breast cancer and we are proud to have this event being held at the hotel next week.
Also, the first ever “Gettysburg Goes Pink” event is being organized for the 19th. All attendees, family, friends, downtown workers are invited to wear pink and join together in the northeast quadrant of the square at 6 p.m. A photograph of the group of pink attired community members will be taken and local merchants have agreed to decorate their windows in pink. Come out and show your support for breast cancer awareness by wearing pink on the Square!
Many local merchants are offering special “pink” products this month. Keep your eye out for these ways to support!
