So one of My favorite memories as a child growing up in downtown Manteo was every year when My older brother, George Etheridge, My father, Lauris Etheridge, and I would set up the Big Tent in front of the old Dare County Court House in Downtown Manteo.
I would get so excited when I would hear Mrs. Lynda Midgett's voice on our answering machine. She would say, "Laauurriiss, It's Lynda Midgett. Im just calling to see if You can set up the Big Tent on the Main Stage for DARE DAY." From this small task of setting up this tent with My Father sparked the interest of, “I wonder what all goes into Planning this huge Event.” And From there I was hooked on Planning and Day Of Coordinating Special Events!
That drive is what also pushed Me to where I am Today in The Outer Banks' Wedding Industry.
And now, years later with more than a decade of experience in the Special Events Industry and The Outer Banks' Wedding Indusrty the Possition of not only being the Director of DARE DAY, but also head of all Special Events for the Town of Manteo
has opened up!
I am so grateful for all of the skills I have learned along My journey of pursuing the Wedding Industry, such as Marketing, Budgeting, Planning, Organizing, Designing, and Directing.
I believe all these skills have set me up to be a good candidate for this Position.
So TODAY I submitted My Application to Manteo’s Town Hall to be the New Director of Special Events for the Town Of Manteo.
So cross your fingers and wish me luck!
