Houseguest Tips: Make bed, leave room immaculate. Pick up clothing. Wipe off powder room sink and counter. Fold towels and put on rack. Have your own agenda, but check with hostess to make sure there is no conflict in schedules. Offer to help with anything that may be needed, grocery shopping, vacuuming and washing dishes.

Active members were also in attendance to ask for suggestions as to how best to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Guild.

Etiquette is not about snobbish rules and class separation. It is a code of behavior and life skills that shows thoughtfulness, common sense and consideration toward others.

Because business is often social and involves dining situations, knowledge of fine-dining skills can help to give one an extra edge and create a positive impression and trust.
