This is my final dining Etiquette column. Hereafter, I will be writing on various Etiquette business and social subjects that will help you feel more at ease with yourself and others. This is a time to create gentility and civility in our society. Civility begins at home and carries to the outside world. You will be a better person. So will others around you.

After 30 years reaping the benefits of the Glendale YMCA, Bill Hughes has started giving back. Swimming six days a week at the YMCA is what keeps him in shape, but now he sticks around two days a week to volunteer at the front desk. When members come to use the facility, he checks them in to the building and answers questions about the YMCA's services. He also points them in the direction they need to go. "I enjoy it," Hughes said. "If I didn't, I wouldn't be doing it. It gives me something to do. If I wasn't doing something, I would go crazy."
