AboutCelebrate Gettysburg magazine Celebrate Gettysburg explores the facets of small-town life that make Adams County such a special place to call home and to visit. In each bimonthly issue, Celebrate Gettysburg features in-depth articles, stunning photography and recurring departments all highlighting the good life in our area. Celebrate Gettysburg was launched in January 2007 by Troy and Jessica Dean. Both lifelong Adams County residents, the Deans realized the need for a publication in their community that would emphasize the area’s unique treasures. Since its launch, the magazine’s page counts, advertisers, subscriptions and circulation have all steadily increased, solidifying the magazine’s standing in the community. In order to meet the growing demand for the magazine, in October 2009 Celebrate Gettysburg merged with Graphcom, a leader in the local print industry for more than 28 years. The merge has also expanded the capability to offer more services and options to magazine clients.

When Marc Jalbert opened Pomona’s Woodfired Bakery Café last year, he had been producing artisan bread for the Gettysburg community since 1996, concentrating on the wholesale market. His Gettysburg Baking Co. was growing and the self-taught baker had to look for a larger location. He found it at 213 E. York St. in Biglerville, the site of a tractor garage. The front of the building had operated earlier as Weaver’s Bake Shop. He overhauled the building and had Arentsville stonemason Randy Bollinger build him a woodburning oven, perfect for his bread. Jalbert decided to tap into the retail trade, bringing his baguettes and boules to local tables. Included in his plan was a small café, where he would serve light, simple fare and pizzas. “I thought I would sell foods that go with bread,” he says. A few months into the venture, a young culinary school graduate walked in. Over cups of Pomona’s house blend coffee, the two talked. Shaun Wolf was looking for a niche in the food business, something a little different and a cut above the rest. Jalbert’s woodburning oven was the key. As a student working in a variety of restaurants, Wolf picked up training and experience cooking in a woodburning oven. But he could prepare whole meals, not just pizza.
