Dear Prudence: I am the co-chair of a daylong cultural and educational event at a local college. We have people from out of town, and over the years my elderly widowed mother has allowed me to put up some of the out-of-town speakers at her large and nice house. I also throw a reception at her house.

Have the other co-chair come over to clean and make the beds.There certainly has to be more than just a couple of people involved in this event. Does she expect the guests to fix the food at the reception? Do the dishes after the reception? Funny place where she decided to draw the line.
