Dear Federation Family,

You are cordially invited to attend the inaugural 
Etiquette Dinner presented by the Employment 
Committee of the National Federation of the 
Blind! At this dinner, you will be educated on 
the ins and outs of appropriate etiquette in both 
professional and social dining settings. From 
knowing which fork to use, to how much to tip, 
and even appropriate dinner conversation. These 
are just a few of the things that will be 
discussed. There will also be an “Ask Ms. 
Manners” portion at the end. For this portion of 
the evening, you will have the opportunity to 
anonymously ask those burning questions that you 
may be too afraid or embarrassed to ask out loud. 
Simply write down your question in either braille 
or large print, bring it with you to dinner, and get the answers you seek!

The dinner will be held on Monday July 10th at 
5:30pm at Café Osceola located within the Rosen 
Shingle Creek Hotel. Attendees are responsible 
for the cost of their meal and are required to 
register in advance to reserve their seat.  The 
dress code is business casual, and we request 
that you arrive early so we can begin promptly.

Also, two lucky attendees will be chosen at 
random and the cost of their entire meal (except 
any alcoholic beverages)will be covered at no expense to them!

The following menu options will be available during the event:
    * Soup of the Day- $5.25
        * Ask your Server for selection(s)
    * COBB SALAD- $14.50
        * Hearts of Romaine, Grilled Chicken, 
Radish, Carrots, Baby Heirloom Tomatoes, 
Cucumber, Chopped Egg, Blue Cheese, Avocado,

Yukon Mashed Potato, Grilled Asparagus, Mushroom 
and Onion Ragu, Rosemary Au Jus
        * Pan-Seared Salmon, Ancho and Honey Rub, 
Tomatillo Relish, Jasmine Rice, and Broccolini
        * Roasted Marinated Half Chicken, Yukon
