The History of the Hershey Chocolate Company

February 6 @ 6:30 pm

Today, the name Hershey is synonymous with quality milk chocolate. But that wasn’t always the case. Milton S. Hershey worked hard and failed often before his chocolate was finally successful, and when did become a household name and earned a vast fortune, Milton and his wife, Catherine, decided to give it all away. Because of their generosity, tens of thousands of orphans have been saved, protected, and educated. On Tuesday, February 6 at 6:30pm, find out more about this American success story and the philanthropy engendered in this virtual illustrated biographical lecture. Sponsored by the Friends of the Hopewell Library. Please visit www.mcl.org to register to receive the link to program.
