We are grateful to these organizations for their generous support.

Program Volunteers

Children today are growing up in an increasingly rude and disrespectful world.  Common courtesies and everyday manners are often the exception rather than the norm.  Traditionally, manners were taught in the home, but in today’s society that is frequently not occurring.  The Manners Are Fun Program can help!

The Manners Are Fun Program is an interactive program on everyday manners for first graders.  It is sponsored, organized and run by Thomas Duncan Hall, Inc.  If you would like to volunteer to help with teaching sessions please call or email Aura Lee Emsweller to schedule an opportunity to visit an actual class and possibly help with future classes.


Sponsor a School


Each school sends their first graders to a 2 1/2 hour program at Duncan Community Hall.  In order to cover the cost for facilities use, supplies and administration, we are seeking sponsorships at $300 per session.

Help us continue this worthwhile program by sponsoring a school.
