UNMASK CHOCOLATE for T/WEENS: Learn which chemicals elicit biochemical reactions in the human brain, making chocolate the perfect drug. During the presentation, you will also learn how to taste chocolate for quality and some of the history of chocolate. Since most everyone loves chocolate, teens will be interested to know why it’s good for them, how much is healthy, and what kinds they should eat. Mike’s presentations include magic tricks! BONUS: There will be chocolate fountains to dip from!
REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED and this event is for ages 10-19 only. It takes place on Wednesday, July 29th, at 6:30pm. We expect each t/ween to bring one type of 'dipper' for the fountain in quantities of 15 or more. Example of dippers----marshmallows, hulled strawberries, bite-sized fruits like cantaloupe or honey dew melon, teddy grahams, oreos, nilla wafers, sponge cake, granola bars, biscotti, rice krispie treats, grapes, lady fingers, orange segments. USE YOUR IMAGINATION. Please remember that the item you bring should be in dipping size before you arrive. Thank you!

EVERY VILLAIN HAS A STORY: Muahahahahaha! Prepare your evil laughs and twirl your mustaches. It's the time of the VILLAINS!
Come join us to create your own villain, mustache and all. Decide exactly what your villain's story is and why he or she is eviiiiiiiil. Why did they become the bad guy? Did they just really want a castle of their own or are they as maniacal as they seem? You decide. Now remember, most villains don't set out to be the bad guy. We'll talk about infamous villains and read about their side of the story. After all, every villain is the hero in their own story!
Register grades K-5 for Thursday, July 30, from 6:30-7:30pm to be part of this villainous evening.
