Busy September in store!
While August may have been a busy month behind the scenes for us, September is shaping up to be busier outside. Starting on Sept. 11 through Sept. 14, we’ll be displaying and selling our chocolates at the Niagara Falls Blues Festival. The festival is free to attend and is an outstanding weekend of music, food, and fun.

Then, we’ll be heading west for the White Satin Wedding Show in Arcadia, Calif. on Sept. 21. The purpose of this great event is to redefine a wedding show by engaging in an interactive experience as well as to bring thought into the art of marriage. Our chocolates will be on display and we’ll be selling to bridal experts and many others.

September is busy, but we wouldn’t have it any other way!

4/4/2014 Niagara University Presidential Inauguration of Rev. James J. Maher, C.M.
What a beautiful ceremony for Rev. James J.Maher, C.M. at Niagara University. Seeing all the support from western New York was a good thing. And then talking about Rev. Joseph L. Levesque, C.M. and all the great things he did as the president before moving on. I posted a picture here of the chocolate edible picture frame of Father James from the reception after sitting in front of an ice sculpture of the NU eagle. The University did a beautiful job with everything. I was glad to be a part of it.
