First Friday Cookie Walk
December 2, 2016 from 5:00-7:00pm
Treat yourself to Santa’s favorite treat, Cookies and Milk, in One Lincoln on December 2nd from 5:00-7:00pm. Don’t let the name fool you though. This is a little stronger than what Santa is used to. Cookies and Milk is our featured beverage on First Friday’s Cookie Walk. The $7 dink consists of vodka, Kahlua and Bailey’s Half & Half. The appetizer featured that night is our Blackened Salmon Risotto with Granola Crunch, only $5. If you enjoy the Cookies and Cream, be sure to come back throughout December because we are featuring that beverage all month. After visiting us in One Lincoln, don’t forget to stop by the front desk and enjoy a Christmas cookie. Then, join the “Cookie Walk” and sample other holiday treats at participating vendors.

The Greens Wreath Class at the Adams County Winery Farm location is back by popular demand. They have once again partnered with Ashcombes Farm and Greenhouse to bring you a beautiful selection of fresh assorted greens with which you’ll make a stunning wreath to adorn your entryway.

Adams County Winery will be featuring a selection of their most popular wines that afternoon and you’ll have the opportunity to sample a glass, included in your package. Guests under 21 are more than welcome.

Olde Getty Place Christmas Parade
December 3, 2016 at 7:00pm
The 2016 Olde Getty Place Christmas Parade is coming to town. Bring your mittens, a thermos of cocoa and a comfy seat and join us as we enjoy seven floats, baton twirlers, musicians, youth groups, local radio stations, a live nativity and much more. Mayor and Mrs. Streeter will be there to help you usher in the holiday season. And this year, it is Gettysburg’s honor and pleasure to welcome the United States Army Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps to our small town to lead the parade! And what Christmas Parade would be complete without an appearance by Santa Claus himself, escorted by the Gettysburg Fire Department!
