Crossroads Shares “The History of Penny Candy”

The program “The History of Penny Candy” will be offered at Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay on Jan. 5 at 2 pm. Penny candy is a cherished memory of anyone mature enough to remember when candy really cost a penny.

“The History of Penny Candy,” will inform attendees how Tootsie Rolls got their name, why salt-water taffy is not made with salt water, and if the name Black Crows was a typo. Samples will be available to help stimulate memories and taste buds.

This lecture is free and open to the public.

Also, Friends of Crossroads will meet on Jan. 7 at 6:30 pm to “un-deck” the halls of the Collins Learning Center and to make plans for 2013.

The Collins Learning Center at Crossroads, located at 2041 Michigan Street in Sturgeon Bay, is open daily 2 – 4:30 pm. For more information visit
