Camp Swoozie’s for Tween Girls August 5th
Two lessons Southern Girls learn from birth: Mind your mama and mind your manners. We didn’t always mind our mamas, but we do know how to mind our manners, and it’s becoming a lost art.
Swoozie’s at the Summit is hosting a series of fun-size workshops on Tuesday, August 5th, from 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. to offer practice on the skills that can’t be replaced with a keyboard or Facebook. Camp Swoozie’s will offer hands-on demonstrations of writing a thank you note, wrapping a charming gift, personalizing appropriately (tip: the large middle initial isn’t your middle initial) and a surprise session to round out the event. Parents may attend, so you can stay nearby and ensure your daughter doesn’t grouse about her middle name, chosen with affection in loving memory of your aunt Gertrude*.
Registration for Camp Swoozie’s is free but limited to 25 attendees; call the store at 205-968-3458 or visit Swoozie’s facebook page to register your child.
And while it used to be that we learned the art of gracious living from our family matrons, do your kids listen to anybody without an Instagram account? Swoozie’s has brought in Miss Alabama 2014 Caitlin Brunell as well as sketch artist Carrie Beth Taylor to lead the workshops, because you won’t be a recognized authority for at least another 10 years or 10,000 followers, whichever comes first.
*G’s make some of the prettiest script monograms, and don’t let your little Miss Priss forget that.
