The Adams County Farmers Market will hold its first ever Civic Engagement Day on Saturday, July 30, from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Farmers Market Site at 108 N. Stratton St., Gettysburg.
Civic Engagement Day is a chance to meet some of your local elected officials, learn about important municipal services, and find out more about how your local government works at the same time you are shopping for delicious and healthy foods.
Gettysburg Borough representatives will be available for conversation and questions. Scheduled to appear are representatives from Main Street Gettysburg and the Gettysburg Police Department, as well as Mayor Rita Frealing, and Council President Wes Heyser.
There will also be interactive kid’s games, information about the Baltimore Street project, and signups for the September e-cycling event.
Please come out and get to know your community even better than you do now.
Participants hope this event serves as a reminder that there is far more that unites us than divides us.
“We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection.” – Abraham Lincoln
