Historic Gettysburg Adams County (HGAC) President Anne
Zabawa announced the creation of the HGAC Endowment Fund, established through the Adams County Community Foundation using
a monetary gift in memory of Connie Farabaugh.
Farabaugh was a strong advocate of historic preservation within Adams County. Farabaugh served as a past president
of HGAC. With her husband Ken, she fully supported the HGAC mission to “foster and participate in the preservation,
and welfare of the historic, architectural, scenic and culturally significant areas within Adams County,” according
to a release.
She and Ken encouraged the
appreciation of historic properties and sites by the Adams County community and were donors to HGAC. With her passing, a long
talked about endowment fund was established through the Adams County Community Foundation with a gift in her memory.
“Connie was a supportive, steady and powerful
force behind many organizations in Adams County,” said Ralph Serpe, president of the Adams County Community Foundation.
“It’s fitting that she is the motivation behind the creation of an endowment fund that will support HGAC for generations.”
