Hello Optimists,

I just want to remind everyone that we have a tour scheduled for Wednesday, July 24th at the National Cemetery in Gettysburg. Our tour guide will be Caitlin Brown from the park service and she asked that we meet at the Taneytown entrance of the cemetery at 6 pm. You can park in the parking lot along Taneytown Road or the gravel lot next to the National Cemetery Annex. You can access the gravel lot by the alleyway next to the Eisenhower Statue along the Baltimore Pike. Following the tour, we can stay for the 100 Nights of Taps, which is played in front of the Soldiers National Monument within the National Cemetery. There was also mention of concluding the evening with drinks at the Appalachian Brewing Company, if people are up to it. I hope everyone enjoys their weekend!

Optimistically, Brian
