Molalla FBLA gets out into community
In October, Molalla FBLA members, plus members of the newly formed Molalla Middle School FBLA, attended a company tour of Woodcraft Industries in Molalla and an etiquette dinner held in Arrowhead's banquet room.
During the tour, students saw first-hand how a manufacturing plant runs and the safety requirements the company must adhere to. Students also got a picture of the education level required to work at a company like Woodcraft Industries.
The etiquette dinner, consisting of five courses, was also a learning experience for FBLA members. Before each course, Molalla FBLA Adviser Corri Ellis gave students etiquette instructions.
Through the dinner, students learned the uses for different pieces of silverware, where to place the napkin, how to hold a knife properly and to always take small bites to allow for conversation, according to member Edgar Eufragio Morales.
Morales said the etiquette skills will be used during the year at the restaurants students and leaders visit as a chapter.
