Earlier this year, Peter Lauricella presented "The History of Chocolate". Today he presents the dark side. The child labour laws in The Ivory Coast, where much of the chocolate is harvested, are very weak. Unscrupulous owners of cocoa
bean plantations take advantage of young teens and force them into a type of slavery, that is far beyond cruel. Learn more about how children are abused in the chocolate industry and what you can do about it on May 20th.
Peter Lauricella was born in Boston, MA and spent almost all of his life in suburban Boston. He has been married to Marilyn for almost 44 years, and together they immigrated to Canada and settled in Port Perry so that they could be loving, everyday grand parents. Peter and Marilyn have a daughter living in Port Perry and a son in New Orleans. Peter has become an active
member of the Sunday Services Committee and is no stranger to our pulpit.
