This past week gave a lot of local people things to chat about.

Friday evening, Main Street Gettysburg’s Long, Long, Long, Long Dinner Party proved to be a great success with a thousand tickets selling out quickly, and those attending having a great time. It provided $15,000 for the Baltimore Street Revitalization project, while giving those attending a unique experience saying they were part of a four-block long dinner table that ran down the center of a street in Gettysburg. Kudos to Wendy Allen for the idea and her committee that made it happen.
