Gettysburg Chamber needs community input

The Gettysburg Chamber of Commerce is working on its annual variety show which is scheduled for Friday, Feb. 1.
The theme for this year’s show is “Hooray for Hollywood,” and talent is being sought to help make the show complete.
Anyone interested in participating in the program should get their act together and contact the Chamber office at 765-2528 or by email at
While the show features local talent and fun musical pieces from movies, it also is an opportunity for the Chamber to recognize a business, organization, and community member for outstanding contributions made to Gettysburg.
This year the Chamber is looking for input from the community.

Buechler, Dorothy Frankhauser, D.T. Stroup, James Cameron, Dr. E.H. Collins, Donna Robbennolt, Jack Stoner, Sandy Hagny, Gerald B.

The community is encouraged to nominate a local business, organization, and person you feel has gone above and beyond for service to the community. Nominations may be emailed to the Chamber at or dropped off at the office located at the Potter County News.
The Chamber elected officers during the December meeting. Serving as president is Angelia Hiles; first vice president is Jeannee Anderson; second vice president is Madee Boadwine; Bobby Jenner is treasurer; and Molly McRoberts is secretary. The board of directors include Imelda Simon, Gayle Kludt, and Kim Sheehan.
