Congratulations to long-time RCI member, Fascia’s Chocolates of Waterbury, Connecticut. In recognition for their role in advancing Connecticut tourism and having a significant impact on the state’s economic vitality, Fascia’s Chocolates received the 2016 Connecticut Governor’s Tourism Partners of the Year Award during the annual Connecticut Governor's Conference on Tourism.

Fascia's Chocolates, located near the tracks of the Naugatuck Railroad, joined forces with the Railroad Museum of New England (RMNE) to create a unique travel experience. In the spring of 2015, the RMNE added a platform to create a Fascia's Station on its tracks. Over the course of the year, Fascia's and the RMNE offer several special events — including the Chocolate Decadence Sunset Tour, a chocolate and wine pairing on the train and at Fascia's location.
