Amblebrook and Roots for Boots Team Up for a Charity Pickleball Tournament

Amblebrook Gettysburg recently hosted its highly anticipated Roots for Boots Pickleball Tournament as part of the action‑packed Days of Joy summer event, bringing together the community to support military heroes and their families. The event featured a round‑robin tournament where participants showcased their pickleball skills while contributing to a noble cause.

A heartfelt thank you goes out to the Amblebrook community and all the pickleball players who generously donated non‑perishable food items during the event. Thanks to their efforts, Roots for Boots filled two cars with donations, and this outstanding show of support exemplifies Amblebrook’s community spirit and commitment to service.
