From Judy Carlsen, Jake Menghini Museum, Norway:

The Partners of the Jake Menghini Memorial Museum in Norway wish to thank the community for their support during their recent Taste of Chocolate fundraiser. In particular, we extend heartfelt appreciation to Norway’s senior citizens for allowing us to use their facility on Main Street for the event. Also, a big thanks to all the media for broad and effective coverage, to the businesses that donated prizes and allowed us to post our signs, to the wonderful cooks of Norway that donated cookies and other treats to sell, and to those who showed appreciation for their efforts by enjoying fellowship, purchasing, and helping our museum stay viable.
