Cancelled -- ChocolateFest

Sharon, Our host for the event is unable to attend. Please accept our apologies and we look forward to seeing you at future events!

Only our meetup is cancelled-please enjoy your chocolate if you have the opportunity!

Parking: Good location to arrive by MAX and not deal with parking.

Info: ChocolateFest promises you the opportunity to sample, taste, savor, and delight in some of the finest chocolate from the Northwest and beyond. There will be food, wine, and beer vendors in addition to the many chocolatiers and free samples. I opted for Sunday of this 3-day event. Let’s meet outside Exhibit Hall A at 10:15 to get in line for the ticket sales which start at 10:30. Hopefully we will be among the first 120 to enter and receive a free pair of ChocolateFest socks from Sock Dreams! If you can’t come that early, come when you can and stroll about watching for us tall folks. This event is a fundraiser for the World Forestry Center.

    I had to play in an orchestra here in Salem that night. Even if I had no other commitment though, I just would never want to go to something like that without a date. I have no desire to much of anywhere alone-too much of a downer. But I can make an exception for chocolate since I am addicted.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
