Relief Society and Young Women Transition Dinner

Relief Society & Young Women Transition Dinner!
We are planning our annual RS/YW Transition Dinner for
Tuesday, May 18, 7:00 pm at the Irvington Building.  In
addition to each graduating senior girl and her mother,
we will be inviting each ward RS president, YW
president, and bishop to this dinner. We want this to be a
nice occasion to honor our young women, and send them
smoothly into Relief Society.

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:)]
