The first workshop was held on July 20th and took up the subject of Etiquette. Delivered by Ms. Peggy Patrick, founder of the Florida School of Etiquette, kids were taught the formalities of table setting, shaking hands, looking into another’s eyes and proper conduct in interpersonal relationships. “I learned that manners are really important and help with life.” remarked one student, “I really liked it”.
