Events at the Starkey Mansion
The Denver Professional Mens Club held their annual meeting at The Starkey Institute last Saturday, January 21, 2012. Seven or eight of Denver’s great professional men enjoyed a convivial evening of business mixed with pleasure while enjoying Chef Althoff’s customized culinary creations and delectable buffet with a good stiff drink! Mrs. Starkey welcomed the group, shared a little of the Mansion’s 110 year history. She invited these special guests to join with their friends or charities and choose the perfect date to experience one of Starkey’s prestigious formal dinners.
The Denver Woman’s Press Club was invited to tour Starkey’s 1901 Historic Mansion last week, still decked in its Christmas apparel. Starkey has been located across the street since the Press Club was built in 1916. Mrs. Starkey was recently invited to join this most interesting group of women writers as she will have forthcoming new publications to share with the service industry and many other followers.
Speaking of writing and words; did you know that in 1981, Mrs. Starkey while sitting with her dictionary, found the phrase “household manager” in a definition and immediately knew it would replace the out- dated old guard title of Majordomo? She began to use the phrase in her advertisements and history was made! “Household Manager” is now an official Department of Labor employment title and Starkey is now celebrating their 125 class. Starkey International has now educated over 1000 Certified Household Managers and placed them world-wide!
