Chocolate Extravaganza fun

| February 12, 2018

COSHOCTON – Karen Fry, Lori Regula and Betty Maurer took a break from volunteering at the Annual Chocolate Extravaganza to smile for a photo. Pictured in front of them are some of the wonderful desserts waiting to be enjoyed by attendees. The event is a fundraiser for the Pomerene Center for the Arts and was held Feb. 10 at the Coshocton County Career Center. “It’s a misty day out there, but warm and cozy in here,” said Anne Cornell from the Pomerene Center. “The room is full, the crowd seems happy and the chocolate is amazing.” All of the desserts were made by volunteers. People from the community also donated door prizes that were raffled off. “People have been so generous to us,” Cornell said. “We started taking chocolate at 4 p.m. yesterday (Feb. 9) and we had close to 50 desserts before 6 p.m. and then from 9 a.m. to noon today we had a steady stream of them come in.” Funds raised from the event help the Pomerene Center preserve its space, which Cornell said is the oldest documented home in the community. “The Pomerene Center is the community’s space,” Cornell said. “We can’t do what we do without the people of this community.”
