Eisenhower’s Birthday Commemoration
Each October, on the Saturday nearest to October 14th, the Eisenhower Society recognizes Eisenhower’s accomplishments. This commemoration gives us a chance to remember Eisenhower’s leadership as General and President and share that knowledge with others. A wreath laying at the Eisenhower statue on the Gettysburg College campus also provides an opportunity for the Society to present scholarships to Gettysburg College students.
Afterward, attendees are welcome to the luncheon at the Dobbin House restaurant. The buffet style meal is followed by a presentation by a guest speaker. Each year we welcome an author or scholar to share an aspect of his or her knowledge about Eisenhower. For information on this year’s speaker, see the registration page.
