Community Focus

GolfGals of Amblebrook

Speaking of Bridges surrounding Gettysburg...Amblebrook at Gettysburg has soooo many clubs of interest.  Although we are still a young (pun intended), 55+ developing community, the residents have really shown an interest in getting involved!  I will post about several clubs, but today I will focus on the GolfGals of Amblebrook.  We are fortunate to have found one of the best instructors in the country when in comes to teaching female golfers and many of us have signed up for lessons at a very reasonably price.  Located a short distance from Amblebrook at Gettysburg, The Bridges golf course is a favorite public course for females and males in our community.  And we enjoy socializing in their wonderful Grill and Bar after a great day on the course!  Spectacular views day or night!

Daniel Lady Farm at Gettysburg

For the history buffs, here is a link for tickets to an event at Daniel Lady Farm in Gettysburg commemorating the 160th Anniversary of the Battle of Antietam. You can expect a reenactment of the battle along with an opportunity to tour the farm. I personally like visiting Daniel Lady Farm for it's history. My great grandfather bivouacked at the farm the night before his march to Culp's Hill to fight with 2nd Maryland during the Battle of Gettysburg. The 160th Anniversary of the Battle of Antietam will be held at Gettysburg's Daniel Lady Farm on 17 and 18 September 2022. Additional details and tickets can be found at this link.  https://gbpa.networkforgood.com/events/36606-160th-anniversary-of-the-battle-of-antietam-sharpsburg?fbclid=IwAR2a8_MR3Yk1vrv-JujzAmCxrQxJ8cbXgKI_2Ucj7khm2r7bz0zjdFlXGCY

Gettysburg Tours

For the history buffs, here is a website of Gettysburg Tour Guides. In our opinion, and I think many others who have used their services, if you are going to tour the Battlefield there is no better way than hiring a Licensed Battlefield Guide (LBG). These guides go through rigorous training, and it's widely known among Gettysburg history experts that you must really know your stuff if you've been certified to be a LBG. Their rates are regulated by the National Park Service and are reasonable, especially considering the guides are very knowledgeable, great story tellers, and will tailor the tour to the audience’s interests.  You can click on or enter this link in your browser for additional information.  https://gettysburgtourguides.org/?fbclid=IwAR11LdHv8Q6mOo_xqOMjzONPci6xLR2L5DcIuisXF4F6THMjw_cYRN12RhI
