Chocolate Frenzy Event held in Pine River on October 25, 2014


Shirley Thompson, Pine River, was voted the recipient of a chocolate kiss crown and boa for her winning entry of a variety of homemade chocolate truffles.  Barbara Castner received second place for her entries of chocolate-covered bacon, oreos and pretzels.  This incredibly successful event at the Saxeville Town Hall received heavy attendance and many volunteers supported the Leon-Saxeville Library by preparing and presenting their favorite chocolate treats for taste-testing and ‘voting’.   Entertainment was provided by very talented local musicians and performers.

A Huge Thank you to all of the Chefs who so generously gave of their time and expense it took to create such Chocolate Masterpieces.

Also Thank you to those that entertained us--it truly made for a festive fun afternoon.  We could not have done it without our Chefs and Musicians.  Thank you so much.
