For the good of it: Rep. Readshaw and the Ride to Gettysburg

The PLS Reporter takes a look at charitable work by legislators

It started with a newspaper story about the upkeep of some monuments at the Gettysburg National Military Park.

“It sort of caught my attention and I thought, ‘Well, someone should do something about that’,” said Rep. Harry Readshaw (D-Allegheny), who started and leads the annual Ride to Gettysburg.

“I really didn’t think it was going to be me, but I thought it would be sort of a good idea if somebody did do something.”

The Ride to Gettysburg is held in September and consists of an average of 350 motorcycle riders going from the Capitol fountain to Gettysburg.

It is one of two events sponsored by Rep. Readshaw that raise money for The Pennsylvania Monuments Project, which provides for upkeep of unendowed Pennsylvania monuments.
