What is a “Chocolate Affair?”
It is decadence, it is elegance, it is luscious desserts. It is mouth-watering, home-made delicacies and it is an aroma of sweet heaven that fills an historic building once a year.
Back by popular demand, Citizens for Backus/AB is holding its third-annual “Chocolate Affair” this Sunday (Feb. 11) from noon-4 p.m. at the Backus Community Centre in International Falls.
“It’s just been growing every year,” said Margarett Patnode, a Backus board member.
For a $7 admission fee ($8 Cdn.), chocolate-lovers will be able to sample from a gorgeous array of chocolate specialties, as well as enjoy a lovely beverage and live music.
Patrons also will have the opportunity to buy chances on several whole, delectable chocolate desserts from great local chocolatiers.
Among those contributing chocolate treats are Jean Wood, Jay Hokenson, Ronna Mackay, Lynda Faith, Penni Cole, Sheila Hart, Katherine Crawford, Pastor Tom Aitken, and Falls City Coun. Chopper McBride.
Valentine gifts also will be available to purchase.
These items include chocolate-dipped pretzels, chocolate cards (painted with actual chocolate), and other “heart art” and gift plates of chocolate, personally chosen by you and gift-wrapped while you wait.
