The ”Book Chicks,” a book club dating back to October 2003 and thus the first of several book clubs made up of local members of the female teachers honorary Delta Kappa Gamma, gathered for its 13th-anniversary October meeting in the New Holland Community Library. The library had been the brainstorm more than five years ago of Ginger Shipley and Book Chicks member Peggy Lester, and continues to serve patrons on Thursday and Saturday early-afternoons in the former New Holland Elementary School. Showing their love of books are (from left) Alma Litten, Patty Ondrus, Cindy Sagar, Peggy Lester, Norma Kirby, Sandy Sowash, Vicki Lynch, Jean Ann Davis and Debbie Roby.
