Salute Our Troops in Downtown Gettysburg for First Friday on November 2nd

Published November 1, 2012

Join us as we salute our troops in downtown Gettysburg for First Friday on November 2nd from 4:00 pm -8:00 pm.

The Gettysburg Area Retail Merchants Association will be joining Goin’ Postal Gettysburg to send holiday boxes to our troops currently serving overseas. The Salute The Troops campaign will kick off on November 2nd. Empty boxes can be found at participating local merchants. When the boxes are filled, Goin’ Postal Gettysburg will ship them out. This should be in time for our soldiers to receive them over the holiday season.

The community is being asked to help fill the boxes with all kinds of goodies and gifts from Gettysburg.
