Last month, I spent a couple of evenings writing and addressing thank you cards to people who donated to Gettysburg CARES through the most recent Giving Spree, sponsored by the Adams County Community Foundation.

As I worked through my portion of the larger list, I recognized many names, people I see at church, or know through work, or run into at the grocery store. And there were also names of people whose houses I drive by, who had yard signs out for someone I didn’t vote for. There were people whose letters to the editor I’ve disagreed with.

Joanne Myers is on the CARES board.
