Chocolate factory tour slated for March 8

The Carver County Historical Society is planning a tour of Laketown Chocolates in Waconia.
Chocolate has a long and rich history. Truffles, chocolate bars, hot cocoa, chocolate syrup — it is a versatile product. Join the Carver County Historical Society as it explores the history of chocolate back to the Mayan Empire. Discover step by step how chocolate is made from the cocoa tree. Also, enjoy a variety of samples of wonderful chocolate concoctions from this local chocolate company.
The tour will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 8. The cost is $10 per person (it’s normally $15 but the historical society will pay the remaining $5). Reservations are required — space is limited to 15 people. Sign up through the historical society at (952) 442-4234.
