  • Inebriation occurs under the influence, and consent cannot be obtained in this state of mind.

Tips for events

Tips for Events

  • The same rules and regulations for alcohol apply to all events.

Crisis Management

  • Always do the right thing and never hesitate to contact authorities, 911 or assistance.

  • Failing to act can be create even more problems in a court of law than acting and worrying about the consequences.

The true gentleman

The True Gentleman

The True Gentleman is the man whose conduct proceeds from good will and an acute sense of propriety and whose self control is equal to all emergencies; who does not make the poor man conscious of his poverty, the obscure man of his obscurity, or any man of his inferiority or deformity; who is himself humbled if necessity compels him to humble another; who does not flatter wealth, cringe before power or boast of his own possessions or achievements; who speaks with frankness but always with sincerity and sympathy; whose deed follows his word; who thinks of the right and feelings of others rather then his own; and who appears well in any company; a man with whom honor is sacred and virtue safe.
