Children learn proper dining etiquette

November 29, 2012

Tables set for fine dining and a three-course meal catered by the Sodexo catering crew was a terrific way to teach the children of Big Brothers Big Sisters about proper dining etiquette. It was as elegant as it tasted and was all planned for the Big Brothers Big Sisters program.

There were ear-to-ear smiles as the children walked into the room. The children and their mentors sat together at the rounded tables laughing, talking and eating. Some gave a sweet and short toast to the rest of the guests. Everyone had a blast and mentioned the meal was amazing!

A little mentioned, “It was a lot of fun, and I can teach what I learned today to my younger brother who is a very messy eater.”

Another little said the chocolate cake was the best part. From the chicken to the chocolate cake, everyone enjoyed learning about proper dinner etiquette and are excited to apply what they learned to the upcoming holidays.

If you are interested in learning more about Big Brothers Big Sisters or want to find ways to become involved you can contact Michel Tigan at the Hudson office at 715-381-7289 or email her at

Ask about how you can make a difference in your community, either through donating your time, money, becoming a board member or becoming a mentor to a child.
