Wednesday YW Activity

Clean-Up Wednesday for 
RC 1st Young Women. 

Litea, Eleni and Melefa are redoing the board
in the nursery room. There are two boards in 
there and we completed the one for Rose City

Again in color. This was Eleni's personal progress.

The kitchen was headed off by Tiva and some
of the Mia Maids and Beehives. It wasn't smelling
so good in there. So we cleaned out the fridge, 
counters and stove tops. We'll be back to clean
the oven. 

Lovely, Tasha and Thea stopping in to help
out the Beehives who are cleaning the library 
and organizing under Kathleen's watch. Lani too!

The girls categorized things that needed to be
put in it's right order, etc. 

Thea, Joana and Sarah organizing and decluttering.

Tidying up before we head out and lock up 
the library. Good Job, girls~

Rose City 1st Young Women's New Beginnings

Tonight we welcomed three new young women
in our New Beginnings program. It was a beaut
iful program where our parents got to see their
daughters progress in Personal Progress as well
as ushering the new girls into Young Women.

Sister Laraine came and was one of our speakers
and handed out the beautiful Personal Progress
gifts that Kathleen had created for the girls. Our
bishopric attended and spoke as well. We truly
felt the spirit this evening in our program.

Here are some pictures of the beginning of the
program. My batteries died out when the program
started. So I'll post up more pictures by tomorrow.

Many thanks to you Young Women for following
through in your Personal Progress, as Kathleen said,
incorporate it into all aspects of your lives and it will
lead you to someday be wonderful mothers, wives
and great leaders. May you all have a blessed
evening and we'll see you on Sunday at Stake Con


The beautiful displays created by Kat & Lani 

YW Values: Faith, Divine Nature, Individual Worth, 
Knowledge, Choice & Accountability, Good Works, 
Integrity and Virtue. Each YW received the New YW 
Personal Progress Book. Kathleen invited the mothers to 
re-earn their medallions together with their daughters. 
[ I am definitely going to re-earn mine together with my 
girls, thanks so much Kathleen:)]

Please wear appropriate clothing to stay warm. 
  • Tips: Wear yellow rubber gloves [dishwashing type] underneath wool gloves you can get the wool gloves at the dollar store or $1 wyb 10 at Fred Meyer to keep your gloves waterproof and your hands dry.
  • If you don't want to spend extra money to go out and buy snow boots, simply use heavy duty garbage bags over your sneakers and duct tape them. 
  • Remember to wear your clothing in warm layers of wool or polyester clothing which should work to keep you warm while having fun out there.
