Hanover, PA – November 8, 2016 – “The Hanover, Pennsylvania, Bucket List” has arrived!

If you’re looking for a new adventure to tackle — alone, or with friends or family — a new book should be of interest to you. “The Hanover, Pennsylvania, Bucket List” has just been released.

Subtitled “100 Ways to Have a Real Hanover Experience,” the book is co-authored by Georgia C. Simpson, Lisa Kane, Justine Kilkelly Trucksess and Ann E. Diviney.

Created as a labor of love by the book’s co-authors, proceeds from the sales of this book will go to the Friends of Guthrie Memorial Library, Hanover’s local library, which supports important programs and services for the library.

Ever since the 2007 comedy film “The Bucket List,” people have been compiling lists of things they want to do before they die (even if they plan to live a long time). This Hanover version will appeal to visitors and longtime residents alike — to the young, the old and the in-between.

Have you eaten that gutbuster? Check. Have you seen the newly restored Gettysburg Electric Map? Check. Have you ever been fired up with tons of chili? Check.

You’ll find things that are obvious Hanover favorites, as well as things that are not so obvious. A handy checklist in the back can be used to keep track of your adventures.

“This easy-to-read, lighthearted book is an ideal holiday gift. It is inexpensive, a handy size, activity-driven and a timely guide to what makes this Central PA area great historically and currently,” says co-author Georgia C. Simpson, “Volunteerism has always made this area strong and the writing of this book for the benefit of the local library proves the continuing dedication of its people.”

Copies of “The Hanover, Pennsylvania, Bucket List” are available at Guthrie Memorial Library, 2 Library Place, Hanover, and the Hanover Area Chamber of Commerce, 146 Baltimore St., Hanover, or at area bookstores. Credit Cards accepted at the Library.
