The community is invited to attend Dancing with the Local Stars, slated for Friday, Nov. 10 at 7 p.m. at Gettysburg Area High School auditorium. The event is presented by the YWCA Gettysburg & Adams County and Adams County Arts Council.
Five local stars, paired with professional dancers and choreographers, will compete for the DWTLS traveling trophy.

Judges John Kramb of Fairfield Inn, Dawn Glass of Vibe Performing Arts and Michael Cooper-White, retired president of Gettysburg Lutheran Seminary, will provide color commentary. Mark Purdy will be the emcee.
