Salute Our Troops in Downtown Gettysburg for First Friday on November 1st
Published November 1, 2013
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 kicks off tonight at First Friday and runs through November 14th. 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. A list of suggested items can be found here (PDF download).
