A Heartfelt Thank You on National Custodian Day

October 2, 2020

This year has been especially challenging for everyone. Yet, our custodians made 2020 a bit shinier. Today, on National Custodian Day, we recognize the work it takes to keep our world-class Museum & Visitor Center clean, disinfected and safe—and we have some of the best in the business.

Custodians are our first line of defense during this challenging year, and they are taking it in stride. Visitors to the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum & Visitor Center have the opportunity to see first hand the benefits of our custodial team's work throughout the building and grounds.

We thank our custodians for keeping our building and grounds clean, for their positive attitudes, and for allowing us to be open for our guests. We couldn’t do it without them.
