The Pella Rolscreen Foundation is actively supporting the building of the hiking and interpretive trail out to the George Spangler Farm from the Museum and Visitor Center.  A check was recently presented to the Gettysburg Foundation by a team from Pella, including Brian Kingery, Director of Operations, Brian Baculik, Gettysburg Plant Manager, and Tabetha Miller, Human Resources Manager.

“We are very thankful to the Pella Rolscreen Foundation for their active support in each of the Pella communities,” said Brian Baculik, Plant Manager of the Gettysburg manufacturing site. “This grant enables Pella Gettysburg to support another great community organization in the Gettysburg Foundation. The Spangler Farm’s story is historically significant and this trail will enable our community and visitors to access that story throughout the year. Our local Pella family is very proud to be part of such a great project.”

“We are grateful for the support of our neighbors at the Pella Rolscreen Foundation,” said Matthew C. Moen, president of the Gettysburg Foundation.  “The George Spangler Farm Trail will connect the historic farm to the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center, allowing us to open the farm to the public for the entire year. We continue to move ahead with this project by completing archeological testing, and we look forward to a trail that provides visitors new recreational and educational opportunities.”

For over 65 years, the Pella Rolscreen Foundation has provided support for the communities where Pella Corporation employees live and work. The Foundation supports a broad range of non-profit educational, civic, and cultural organizations through, grants, matching gifts, and a volunteer recognition program.
