I originally intended to write this month’s column with a focus on encouraging our local residents to experience the activities and attractions at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center throughout the winter and inviting the community to learn more about the Gettysburg Foundation and what we do in partnership with the National Park Service.

The focus of this column quickly changed at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 12, when Gov. Tom Wolf’s new COVID-19 restrictions took effect, temporarily closing the Museum & Visitor Center for the second time in 2020.

David Malgee is interim president at the Gettysburg Foundation; GettysburgFoundation.org.
