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.

Breakfast with Santa

December 3, 2016 from 7:30-11:30pm

Don’t forget to join us bright and early on December 3rd as we welcome Santa to the Gettysburg Hotel for our 13th Annual Breakfast with Santa!  Tickets are $5 per person at the door.  Kids under 3 eat free!  Mrs. Claus will be joining him, as well as his most trusted reindeer, Rudolph.  Get your picture taken with Santa while you’re here and be sure to bring him your Christmas wish list!  The photo is included with admission and will be sent to your mom or dad.  We look forward to seeing you there!

Greens Wreath Class

December 3, 2016 from 1:00-3:00pm

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.  If you’re intimidated by the idea of making your own wreath, cast those concerns aside.  Andrea Bitzel, with Ashcombes Fram and Greenhouse, will be there to instruct you every step of the way.  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.
The class is $45 per person and reservations are required.  Call to reserve your seat today.  (717)334-4631

Unwined & Relax

December 4, 2016 from 1:00-5:00pm

After a busy week of cooking for Thanksgiving, putting up the Christmas tree and getting your early bird shopping in, you deserve a break.  Head over to the Adams County Winery Farm Location and take their free essential oils class, presented by doTerra, from 1:00-2:00pm.  The class is free, but reservations are required for planning purposes.  After the class, enjoy time to shop at a variety of vendor booth for purses, clothing, jewelry, mini manicures by Grace Kelly Salon and much more.  Other vendors include LuLaRoe and Mary Kay, just to name a few.  The vendors will be there from 2:00-5:00pm to help you  “unwined & relax”.  Call to reserve your seat today.  (717)334-4631
