A Round of Applause for Jennifer DeChant and the Chocolate Church

by Peter Alexander, The Coastal Journal
The Chocolate Church Arts Center has been on the upswing for the past three years since Jennifer DeChant took over as executive director in July 2013. Serving pro bono for most of that time, while also serving as State Representative for much of the City of Bath, DeChant has taken on more than her share of challenges, from huge debts and dwindling audiences when she first started, to the 150-year-old building itself, with its antiquated systems and questionable structural integrity.
