First Friday Gettysburg Style November 4th
Published November 3, 2011
This Friday, November 4th, is First Friday Gettysburg Style! Visit downtown Gettysburg restaurants and shops for some fun events and specials. This month everyone is asked to join the Gettysburg Retail Merchants in Saluting The Troops. Participating Retailers will be collecting items to ship oversees. The community is being asked to participate by helping to fill the boxes with all kinds of goodies from Gettysburg.
Some of the suggested items would include: snacks/candies, personal hygiene items, and personal items. A detailed list and participating merchants is on the GARMA website here. Many of the suggested items can be purchased through the different GARMA Merchants. The boxes will be mailed out in November so they will arrive in time for our soldiers to receive them over the holiday season.
For only $1 members of the community can include their own personal words of support to the soldiers. Just purchase a postcard from Goin’ Postal Gettysburg and write your message on it. Each postcard will be included inside one of the boxes. The proceeds of the sales of these postcards will go exclusively towards the cost of shipping the boxes. This is a great opportunity for Gettysburg to let our troops know how very much we appreciate their sacrifice by sending them a little bit of home along with our best wishes for their safe return.
