Each year, the Gettysburg Optimist Club honors a local individual who promotes and exemplifies respect for law enforcement and civic duty in the community. The Gettysburg Optimist Club has been honoring community leaders for years with the Respect for Law award. The recipient of the award is invited to attend and speak at a meeting and is presented with a honorary plaque. The Gettysburg Optimist Club is proud to announce that the 2015 recipient of the Respect for Law award is the Honorable John D. Kuhn. Judge Kuhn will be presented with the award at the Club’s upcoming dinner meeting on October 7, 2015.
