Thank You for 10 ‘Great’ Years

By Jessica Dean

I can’t believe it has been 10 years since our first annual Gettysburg’s Greatest Awards! During this time, we have seen the award categories grow and the number of ballots submitted increase. We have helped some businesses grow their following in the region, and we have introduced our readers to others they may not have known otherwise.

I think my favorite all-time ballot submission was for special event. This particular person listed their favorite event as the Kennie’s Market Meat Sale! I have to say that even though it didn’t win the award, I look forward to that sale every year, as I know lots of other fellow Adams Countians do, too.

Thanks for supporting the awards and helping us celebrate 10 years of Gettysburg’s Greatest.
