NOTES ABOUT ATTIRE: Since it may be cold this day (THEY ARE CALLING FOR A HIGH OF 32 DEGREES RIGHT NOW!), dress warmly underneath the uniform.  Please make sure the uniform looks good and that the shoes are WHITE - polish them!!  Also, if gloves need to be worn, they must be WHITE gloves (not blue, gold, or anything else). Find a cheap pair of white gloves and buy them.  Staff members may wear overcoats over their blazers as well as hats - try and wear the nicest looking items you own.
