The Red Prince Civility Event

Meet the charming Red Prince and learn useful etiquette tips

TORONTO, Feb. 5 /CNW/ - Hear ye! Hear ye! On Friday, February 5th, Torontonians are formally invited to the Red Prince's Civility Event as a new local apple claims the throne - the Red Prince apple. To celebrate this new apple variety hailing from Europe, now locally grown in Ontario, the Red Prince and his team will distribute more than 10,000 Red Prince apples between 11am and 2pm to the public in the underground PATH system.

In addition, to help promote the return of civility and manners to society and to encourage acts of kindness, the Red Prince and the Adelaide Spa will indulge passersby with the royal treatment by offering free hand massages for men and women during their lunch hour. Louise Fox, owner of The Etiquette Ladies, will be onsite to provide useful etiquette tips proven to be beneficial in business situations, family life and dating and to help launch the 30-day civility challenge.
