Pass the Manners, Please

In addition to our Cotillion classes we offer a variety of protocol, etiquette, and custom-designed dining skills classes for young adults and adults alike. Annually we offer a Dinning Skills class called  “Pass the Manners, Please”that is open to young people in Grades 5–12. It’s a fun, informative dinner located at The Chef and The Farmer  that covers all the important distinctions in table manners. So as students enjoy a multi-course meal, they are learning all the key skills that define proper dining protocols, including:

  • Taking a seat properly
  • Identifying place settings and glassware
  • Handling utensils and napkins
  • Eating common and unusual foods
  • Passing food around the table
  • Handling unwanted foods
  • Saying thanks and toasting
  • And more!

Enrollment is limited. Registration is managed on a first-come, first-served basis, so don’t delay. Your Registration Form may be submitted online and mail/make tuition of $85 to AB Cherry : 3500 Lakeview Trail, Kinston, NC 28504 . (Please note that there is a five-day cancellation policy for this program.)

She is so excited to do it again in the fall. I think it was a very good experience for her and a confidence booster. Thank you for the fun aspect you put into it as well as etiquette."
