It’s spring and that means it’s time for the Debutantes and Beau’s Annual Etiquette Luncheon & Tea; this marks the 16th year of this event. The Deb’s & Beau’s of the 2010 Christian Cotillion/Beautillion (CCB) attended two etiquette workshops facilitated by Ms. Earlene Freeman, which culminated with the Luncheon and Tea on Sunday April 18, 2010. The keynote speaker was Pastor Anthony Paschal of the 16th Street SDA Church in San Bernardino, California.

Each year the Deb’s & Beau’s participate in a six month program which consists of cultural, civic, etiquette, current events and public speaking workshops.

As one part of the cultural aspect; The Deb’s and Beau’s saw “Dream Girls” at the Ahmanson Theater in Los Angeles California; also part of the civic --was volunteering at the Ronald McDonald House for families of hospitalized children in Loma Linda, California.

The Chairperson, Yolanda “Angel” Cohill, has been involved with this wonderful program since inception. She worked closely with the founder, the late Ms. Roylestine Bowman, who began the CCB sixteen years ago. Ms. Cohill has picked up the baton and hasn't stopped. She states, “Every child should be afforded the opportunity to experience a Cotillion, not just the privileged”.
