It\u2019s a nice family affair,\u201d said C. Morgan Haymond, an independent paralegal\/landman who is on the library board in Elkins.\r\n\r\nEleven members of what has become a regular Chocolate Brunch excursion have confirmed they\u2019ll be attending this year\u2019s event, scheduled from 9 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, Apr. 14.\r\n\r\n\u201cI would describe it as one of the nicest fundraisers to help a library,\u201d Haymond said. He described the staff at the Greenbrier County Public Library, which sponsors the brunch to benefit the library, as first class. This is the fourth year that Haymond and his wife, Debra, have attended. Their first festival attendance was during the time their daughter lived in Lewisburg.\r\n\r\nHaymond is equally enthusiastic about the brunch offerings. \u201cLast year their French toast was wonderful,\u201d he said.\r\n\r\nHe was referring to the introduction of the brunch\u2019s Stuffed Mexican Hot Chocolate French Toast with Cinnamon Whipped Cream and Chocolate-Maple Ganache. The recipe features cream and cocoa powder in the toast, which is stuffed with a creamy chocolate ganache and topped with real whipped cream flavored with cinnamon.\r\n\r\nThe brunch starts with chocolate mousse, served by library staff, with the help of the Friends of the Greenbrier County Public Library. The meal also features chocolate-dipped bacon, a chocolate muffin, a white chocolate orange scone with lemon curd, hot chocolate and chocolate coffee. (Fruit, regular coffee, hot tea and juice also will be available.)\r\n\r\n\u201cThe kids that help are well mannered,\u201d Haymond added. Those junior servers were Graham Clemons, Brenna Shafer, Evan Shafer, Caden Carver and Rylee Carver.\r\n\r\nThis year\u2019s library brunch is part of Lewisburg\u2019s 12th Annual Chocolate Festival, which Haymond also praised, complimenting festival planners on how streets are blocked off and traffic directed.\r\n\r\nSeating for the brunch is limited. Tickets cost $10 for adults, and $5 for age 10 and younger. Tickets may be bought in advance at the library at 152 Robert W. McCormick Drive. Credit cards are accepted. More information is available by calling the library at 304-647-7568.
