This is part of Healthy Adams County’s 25-year anniversary monthly Gettysburg Times column series.

Congratulations to Healthy Adams County (HAC) for almost 20 years of accomplishments noted through the Physical Fitness Task Force (PFTF). The PFTF was formed in Adams County in 2002 to address the rising health concern of obesity in the US. This community driven task force has had many partners and contributors throughout Adams County; to name a just a few: The Gettysburg Hospital, YWCA, Gettysburg Rec Park, Gettysburg College, Gettysburg Times, Penn State Extension, (and others) including numerous community members and organizations who contributed much to this task force’s success.

Holly Cookerly is the former chair of Healthy Adams County’s Physical Fitness Task Force and Betsy Meyer is the current chair of Healthy Adams County’s Physical Fitness Task Force.
