Just in time for Halloween! Join the Harbor Springs Area Historical Society to welcome Laura Keyes to our virtual History Talk series to talk about Milton Hershey and his candy empire.

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 company was finally successful. And when he did become a household name and had 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. Attend this illustrated lecture to hear the “behind the scenes” story of this beloved American company.

Advanced registration is required for this online presentation. A zoom link will be emailed to participants. Tickets are $10 and are available online or by calling (231) 526-9771.
