Cruising For A Cause

The Youth & Family Center had a wonderful dinner auction to raise money for the Center.  The theme was Cruising  For A Cause - Cape Town South Africa. We took the journey in the beautifully decorated multipurpose gym transposed to give you the feel of being on location in Cape Town. Delicious food, fabulous entertainment and thousands of dollars raised.  The auction consisted of everything from trips, restaurants to art and jewelry.  The awesome thing about the art and the jewelry. . . it was all made by the kids from the Center. A few of them were students from my etiquette classes! What a blessing! Looking forward to attending next year!  Join me.

Gentleman Etiquette Class Enrollment Now Open!

I teach a course called Ladylike and Gentleman Behavior. It is a class for youth. It teaches the girls how to be young ladies with poise and grace (Melania Trump beautifully portrays those qualities). The class also teaches the boys how to be gentlemen. In doing so, the gentleman helps to assist ladies with doors, steps, chairs, and coats, nor does he leave her lingering behind when they are together. It looks like someone needs enroll in my next class!

Tea Etiquette at McClay ADC

The residents of the McClay ADC Center participated in my Tea Etiquette Class during January's Hot Tea Month.  The ladies were dressed in red and purple hats, pearls, and gloves. Not only did the ladies participate, but a few men joined too. I think it was mostly for the delicious finger sandwiches and pastries! Anyway. . . Real men drink hot tea!!! It was a lot of fun! They drank a lot of tea. . . I promise, it was straight tea too!
