These gals were the perfect team to welcome and entertain our Chocolate tour-goers on Saturday! Hand-molded treats (chocolate, white chocolate and strawberry) -- 1,200 of them!-- made by Beth Humphreys were as darling as they were delicious! The tables were charmingly adorned with valentines galore; a beautiful raffle basket created by Deb Foster and Brenda Spicer was amazing in its bounty! And the selfie backdrop from Beth was a big hit. Such fun to see so many happy people on Saturday! Thanks to the three volunteers mentioned, as well as Mary Pierson, Kenna Williams, Cathy Becket, Michelle Railey, Brenda Kelley, Jinx Fisher -- did I leave anyone out? -- for all the hard work in preparing for this event. On to Sippin' Into Spring!!! ... See MoreSee Less

Our new display cases arrived last week and are being filled with new stories to share with visitors, including "Hinges of History: From Horsepower to Horsepower" and "Four Waring Brothers in WWI." Display cases were funded by the Museum's Generations Club, with donations from the Cravens, Hedges, Waring, Wharton Wharton families, friends of the late Sandy Wendling, and the Gregg Williams Foundation. The Museum reopens on Friday, Feb. 2, on a three-day schedule: Fridays, Saturdays and Tuesdays. We'll be serving chocolate treats on Saturday during the downtown Chocolate Tour, too. (Be sure to check out our front windows for a special display, too!) Hope to see you soon! ... See MoreSee Less
