Free Lecture: A Butler’s Life

February 14 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

A Butler’s Life,

Scene’s From the Other Side of the Silver Salver…


Ever wonder what it’s like to be a butler? The McFaddin family regularly employed butlers on their full-time staff. Our guest speaker this month is Christopher Allen, a former “Mr. Jeeves” and his wife Kimberly Burton Allen who penned a memoir about her husband’s life working in villas on the Cote dAzur and in California, on luxury yachts in England and estates in the Hamptons. Part tell-all and how-to, the lecture will give us not only a glimpse of real-life duties behind the silver tray, but tips on better hosting and home management.

Join us on Valentine’s Day for a fascinating peek into the world of personal service in luxury. A champagne and chocolate reception will follow. Doors open at 6:00 and seating is limited. Sorry, but saving seats will not be allowed.
