Manners Curriculum Completed at Tea Party

The Boys & Girls Club of Door County, in partnership with The Women’s Fund of Door County and The Inn at Cedar Crossing, hosted its first Little Ms. Manner’s Tea Party on May 28. Twenty-three girls had fun selecting dresses and getting their hair done before the Door County Trolley transported them from the Sawyer School Club site to the Inn at Cedar Crossing. A highlight of the trolley ride included the driver graciously playing the tune from Disney’s Frozen while all 23 girls sang enthusiastically along. Once the girls arrived, they were treated to a formal tea, which included special teacups for each girl that they were able to take home. The girls were treated to this special occasion after completing six weeks of manner’s curriculum at the Boys and Girls Club. The manner’s curriculum was purchased through a grant the Boys & Girls Club received from the Women’s Fund of Door County.

Cora Baudhuin, Ms. Door County, as well as Sophia Pollman, Ms. Door County’s Outstanding Teen, joined the girls and talked about how good manners have helped them become successful young women. After sampling the treats provided by the Inn at Cedar Crossing, the girls returned to the club to make thank-you cards for all those involved in the event.

“I really couldn’t say it better than one of the girls who returned and told me that, ‘This was the best day ever!’” said Executive Director Julie Davis.
