An excerpt from the introduction:
“David Bauer offers an inner-circle view of Lititz in the 1950s, from the perspective of a borough manager’s desk. Current borough manager Sue Ann Barry details Lititz’s early 1990s fight against the ACLU, which was an effort to maintain a cherished Christmas tradition. Civic leader Stephen Palkovic revisits the waves created by a controversial effort to build a public swimming pool for Lititz in the early 1960s. Art Ritz’ first person account of life in the 1920s and ‘30s, revelations from Lititz-born business leader Roy Clair, a local musician’s notes on musical history, teaching lessons from the late Vera Hoffman, and even a “What If?” chapter that paints a contrasting picture of Lititz and Dover, Del., combine for a captivating mosaic of historical insights. This is not an academic chronology of 250 years, but rather a mosaic history of the people, by the people.”
