Manners Matter

Each spring, we offer:

Exemplary manners and proper social graces were very important to the Victorians! Junior Scouts are invited to discover more at the Victorian Home and Carriage House Museum, where they will earn and receive the Social Butterfly badge. Practice the art of polite conversation, learn how to set the table, create a home-made “thank you” note, and much more. Simple “tea party” refreshments will be served during the event. To help set the mood, girls are encouraged to wear “dress clothes”!

It’s All Fun and Games
