This was the best Young Men/ Young Women activity I have ever been in charge of. I however can take no credit for its execution or success. Delia Woodbury, better know as Dee Dee. What to blame for everything. She put on a very impressive presentation. presentation was appropriate and elegant. Sister Woodbury has been educated and certified to be able to teach etiquette and manners. It was also interesting because she not only told the youth how to do certain things like how to place your utensils but why we are to place them that way. She made the presentation interesting by giving historical reasons for how these etiquette traditions have evolved. We had 28 youth in attendance. There were about 10 adults who managed the food serving. I made the biggest mistake by not presenting Sister Woodbury to the youth in a more professional manner.
Over all I think this was a very good experience for the youth. I don’t think they will realize how important this was until later in life as they realize they are confident in formal dinning situations and will impresses those around them with their poise and confidence.
The biggest thanks for that needs to go to Sister Woodbury.
