The Friends of History will host its annual Porch Party on Friday, June 9 at the John Wells Pratt House Museum, 177 S First Street, Fulton, 5:30 - 7:30pm.

This year's theme is "Chocolate Is in the Air!" Come join us for a cheerful day with lots of good food and good friends, old and new. There will be a variety of finger foods, hot and cold dishes, beverages, and desserts. Bring your appetite! The cost is $20 per person.

The new exhibit this year (occupying two rooms!) is the Chocolate Works Museum, which features history about the Nestle factory. The rooms are full of chocolate bars and other products made at Fulton’s Nestle factory, along with other items and photos depicting the century-long history of the plant. There are also video displays and slide presentations that show how the products were made.
