Gettysburg Foundation is a unique public private partnership with the National Park Service. I started to voluntee in Spring 2012 and have logged over 70 hours in various roles...from fence painting on the battlefield to docent at the historic Rupp House; and most recently acting as "shepherd" to a group of 12 other volunteers participating in the group's first Volunteer Service Vacation. Folks from CO, WA, MI, NY and PA worked/learned for 4 nites/ 5 days on the historic battlefield....which will celebrate its 150th anniversary in July 2013.
