Lake Gaston Ladies Club is a women's club of those living on Lake Gaston that is spread over 5 counties in 2 states--NC and VA. Bookers - the Book Club division - is one of the Auxiliary Groups (along with needlework, gourmet, bridge, line dancing, gardening, singing, acting, Red Hats, painting, etc.). Formed in 1989, the group's mission statement is to share a mutual love of books and reading, as well as other aspects of cultural arts and education. The group is unique, because it is usually not a single title book club. Programs have included authors speaking to the group, skits performed (excerpted from books), original short stories and poetry shared, literary puzzles, book and the movie discussions, children's literature presentations. The group is so large that it meets at church fellowship halls or the local Lions Club building. The current contact person is Gina Starbuck, (252) 586-6662. Membership is open to those belonging to the Lake Gaston Ladies Club.
