Young Girls Learn Manners and Etiquette at Miss Macon Tea Party
Young girls in Middle Georgia get the chance to dress their best and meet a beauty queen on Saturday all while raising money for a local scholarship fund.
More than 10 girls attended the Miss Macon Organization tea party and manners class at the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame. The girls met 2012 Miss Georgia, Leighton Jordan, and learned the importance of etiquette and manners. The event raises money for the Miss Macon Scholarship fund which helps young ladies achieve their personal and professional goals. However, event organizers said the day was about making little girls feel special.
"I think all little girls like to get dressed up and be a princess for a day,” Miss Macon Organization Executive Director April Montgomery said. “This is one way that they can come out and get to meet Miss Georgia and some other dignitaries as well as learn some basic manners."
The Miss Macon Organization will be hosting "Miss Macon" and "Miss Macon Outstanding Teen" on October 13 and the winners from that will compete to become Miss Georgia and hopefully compete in the Miss America Pageant.
