Bernie and Bonnie will be conducting a chocolate truffle sampling. The program is free and open to the public, however, due to the nature of the program, the museum personnel requests that you make a reservation in advance by calling 570-326-3326 or registering with the lchsadminassistant@verizon.net.

Bernie and Bonnie Katz are the owners of Le Chocolat at 420 Pine Street, located in downtown Williamsport. Bonnie started the retail business over 20 years ago. At that time it had a different name and offered balloon bouquets and deliveries. Slowly, she began adding candy to her store as an extra to the balloon gift business.

Thirteen years ago, Bonnie moved her retail store from East Third Street to downtown Williamsport and made it a chocolate and candy store. Balloons were available but that part of her business was losing ground to supermarkets and large party stores. She then decided to expand her selection of chocolates and began attending Trade shows to find some of the best chocolates produced. For this program, Bonnie and Bernie will bring truffles for this ‘tasty’ sojourn into chocolate heaven!

The lecture series combines the LCHS Coffee Hours (second Thursday of March-June, Sept.-Dec.) at 10am and its Society Programs (third Sunday of May-October) at 2pm. The programs are free and open to the public. The lecture series is supported in part by a generous grant from the Woodcock Foundation for the Appreciation of the Arts.

The Thomas T. Taber Museum is located at 858 West Fourth Street, Williamsport. Ample parking is available behind the museum and on the street. For further information regarding the programming at the Taber Museum, please call at 570.326.3326 or visit the website at www.tabermuseum.org
