The Salvation Army’s annual Kettle Campaign is scheduled to get underway the first weekend of November at the Gettysburg Wal-Mart.  As in past years, The Optimist Club of Gettysburg membership has been contacted to help “Ring the Bell” and help staff some of the one and a half hour long sessions that  are available from noon to 9:00 pm each day up to Christmas.

Club members, along with their family and friends who wish to volunteer their time can sign-up by submitting their name, phone number and email to Craig Sweet at, Mark Cropp at, or by placing their name on the Optimist Members sign-up sheet which will be available at the regular membership meeting on Wednesday, October 17.  Family members and friends are encouraged to participate.

Members who volunteer will be contacted in the coming weeks by Ellie Sheen to determine a convenient time slot for volunteers to “Ring the Bell”.
