The Rotary Club of McLean held its Eighth Annual Chocolate Festival on Sunday, Jan. 27 at the recently renovated McLean Community Center. Proceeds from the Chocolate Festival will go to local and international charities supported by the Rotary Club. Every Rotarian and other volunteers participated in sales and support for the event.
More than 25 chocolate purveyors sold their wares to the record crowd. People could buy candy for later or consume other chocolate delights in dining areas at the festival. There was cultural entertainment from the Adagio School of Dance and Trillium Trio and many more.
American Heritage Chocolate presented a historical chocolate exhibit providing drinking chocolate like George Washington would have served. Participation was at a record level this year.
