Those that recognize my name know I usually write the Westminster AARs. Westminster used to be our hometown and we do FReep/Rallies the 2nd and last Saturdays of each month, but Gettysburg, PA is our hometown. The past 2 weekends have given me great opportunity to share some special events that have taken place in our historic and amazing hometown. Westminster is a great place to visit, but we love living in Gettysburg! For those of you that live elsewhere, Gettysburg is a great place to visit! Over 40 miles of scenic road including the Gettysburg National Military Park, battlefields, monuments, museums, restaurants and many other historical attractions. Hows that for a plug and trying to boost our economy? I tried! Enjoy, folks!
Gettysburg Tea Party on Independence Day: July 4, 2009
On Independence Day, over 200 people attended the Gettysburg Tea Party at the Adams County Courthouse in Gettysburg, PA. My husband was one of the attendees and got some great pictures. The group met at the Courthouse and listened to some speeches. Then they marched north to Lincoln Square around the square, ending up back where they began. Click HERE for a more detailed account.
Gettysburg Bike Week: July 9, 10, & 11, 2009
We didn't attend Gettysburg Bike Week, but we went into town for lunch on Friday and took in all the sights and sounds of the Harleys and their owners! Very cool! While I can't provide the sounds, I have plenty of pictures to provide the sights! On Saturday night, we had a great view of the fireworks from our own front yard!
From PA to MD Ping!
Thank you very much for sharing this. It’s wonderful.
You didn’t take any pics of *us*?!?
DC Chapter Master Ping List.
A real good AAR and some real nice pics of Gettysburg.
RockerMom - 200 “Tea Partyers” is a nice number considering how spread out your homesteads are.
Thanks for the AAR.
Thanks for sharing the wonderful pictures of Gettysburg! We lived in Littlestown PA until 2006 and we so loved that entire area (Hanover, G’burg, Westminster, etc.). Great people, tons of history, and 4 seasons!!!! Treasure it...now we live in central Alabama (we’re finally back home with our folks), but I do miss the PA sweetness...
Who’s the girl in the yellow shorts in the first picture?
Got CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE?
Sorry I missed you - maybe next year?!? :)
Thank you [Mr] T! I was surprised of how many were at the Tea Party. Comforting to know! My pleasure to post this AAR and thanks for pinging!
Gettysburg College Class of ‘91 Bump. FYI, Ron Paul is also a Gettysburg College alumnus.
My pleasure! Believe me, we do treasure this area and the people! Sorry you had to move away and I was going to ask why you moved away if you liked it here so much, but you answered it for me. Thanks for your post!
I have no idea, but if you visit Gettysburg, you might find out! LOL ;)
Where’s the rally point?
Thanks for the bump. Cool! When’s Ron Paul coming back for the reunion? LOL
Good Luck on the TeaParty.
Does the Farnsworth House still serve peanut soup?
That’s great that you visit Gettysburg at least once a year and you get to hang with your grandson as he spends hours in the military antique shops. Thanks for the good luck!
