The great Emily Post said, “Etiquette is present any time people’s actions affect one another.” Here at Riderwood, we strive for that action to be harmonious. While Mrs. Post died in 1960, her work continues at The Emily Post Institute which is run by some of her descendants.
Here at Riderwood we are fortunate to have Mz Emily P. Riderwood. Mz Emily will promote the 12 Principles of Considerate Conduct that were developed by the CommUNITY Living committee. She is well versed in matters of considerate conduct and will have something to say at different times and places around campus. Watch for her on Riderwood TV, channel 972. Please greet here warmly when you see her. You might want to sit and have a chat or ask her to dinner. Along with committee members, she will be the spokesperson for the 12 Principles and may persuade you to practice civility everyday.
Welcome to Riderwood, Mz Emily P. Riderwood.
“Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use.” – Emily Post
