Hi All,

The combined YW met at the church last night, made sure we were dressed WARMLY, and headed out to rake leaves. They did a GREAT JOB clearing up the leaves (with the help of the street lights) from STOUT’S, MAUERMAN’S, and Sr. BLOCKER’S homes—all in record time. Then back to the ward for Sr. Kidd’s GREAT HOT CHOCOLATE and donuts!!! We missed those who couldn’t make it, but COME NEXT TIME, cause it was FUNNNNNNNN!!!

Some of the pics are hard to see—cause it was DARK OUTSIDE!!! J

Next Wednesday at 6:30 pm we have combined YM/YW mutual. We will be playing Human Foosball! Don't miss it! It will be tons of fun!! We will also be practicing our song "Everywhere I go" before mutual starts. For this you need to be here at 6:00pm specially if you want to learn the descant part of the song.
On Saturday there is a YM/YW Quad Stake Dance. Call each other and go with friends!
And last but not least... Our YW in Excellence is next Sunday! Work on your projects, practice your parts, let's be ready! If you need help, have questions call us, we are here for you.
Attached are some ideas for costumes for the girls representing women of faith. You don't need to buy anything, get curtains, sheets, pillow cases whatever works, it'll be great!

YW in Excellence Display Ideas!!!

Hey ladies,

Thank you thank you to all those who were able to come to our activity last night- it was lots of fun! We had a great time passing off value experiences and planning out YW in Excellence. Most of you have been asking us questions about what to do for your Project/Value Displays. I ran across this web page this morning that had some amazing ideas! Here is the link:

Scroll through all the ideas- this should help you understand a little more what you should be working on. Try to choose one value to focus your display on- however, if you have 2 or 3 projects you're working on that are all from different values, that's okay, too! Remember, if you have ANY questions about ANYTHING to do with the program or displays, PLEASE give any of us a call- we're here to help you girls! Love you all and talk to you soon!

YW in Excellence song...

Hey Ladies,

Here is the song we've been practicing for YW in Excellence- listen to it over and over so you can get the tune in your head and we can learn is faster! Just click on the link below, scroll down to "Everywhere I Go" sung by James Loynes, click on it and it should start playing. If you want the sheet music to follow along, go to, click on the tab "sheet music", then "Young Women". Scroll down until you find "Everywhere I Go".

We REALLY hope most of you will do this, it will help us learn this song faster. We only have less than 3 weeks until our program!! So, pull this up and listen to it every chance you get! General Conference this weekend would be a great chance to listen to this song during the breaks between sessions. . . hint hint. . . Thanks so much, girls- this song will be beautiful!

Your YW Leaders :)

Wouldn't life be worth the living

Hey girls! Don't forget, tomorrow (Wednesday) is our year-end Personal Progress Pizza Party! It will be at 6:30pm, at Sis. Bates' house (just go straight there, not to the church first). Here's what you need to bring:

1. A wrapped white elephant gift; something you can find around the house, not worth more than $2 ... this is just for fun!
2. An ugly sweater, hat, scarf, etc. We will have a contest to see who could find the ugliest piece of "outerwear."
3. Your Personal Progress Book - if there are goals you need to have signed off, this is the Perfect time to do it.
4. Each other! If you need rides, call one of your leaders, we'll be happy to come and get you if we can.

That's it! Oh, and, Please be Punctual to our Ph-antastic Personal Progress Pizza Party (!).
(I had to say it...)

First of all, THANKS everyone who came out last night. We had a great turnout, and I think the ward members loved having you come by caroling. Hope your toes have warmed up, Liz! : )

A couple more things to remember: This Friday is the ward party, come, bring your families, it should be fun!
Next week is our PP Pizza Party! Check your PP books and see if there is anything we can sign off for you that evening.

This Sunday is Fast Sunday. Is there something you've been meaning to focus your fast on?

It's also BYC, and we are meeting early (11:30) to firm up our mutual schedule for 2010. Class presidents, please make sure you, or one of your counsellors can attend.

And lastly ... are any of you super tech-savvy about downloading pictures off of a computer onto a CD? I need some help! If you know what you're doing and would be willing to help with a little YW project I'm working on, pls let me know. : )

Thanks, and hugs all around! See you Friday night.

Tonights Activity

Hi Girls. Happy Wednesday!

Just a few reminders:
Today we are hosting a Veteran's Dinner for all the men/women in our ward who have served in the Military. It's going to be a really nice evening; for them, but especially for you, as you get a chance to talk to these men and women- I think at this point they are all servicemen and women - about their experiences serving our country. I have a particular tenderness when I think of honoring our troupes, and I hope that you will treat them, their stories, and their sacrifices with appropriate respect and appreciation.
With that in mind, please come dressed appropriately. You don't have to wear a church dress, but please don't come in torn jeans, hoodies, sweatpants, etc. Most of these men and women are from a different generation, and how a person dressed was definitely a sign of respect (or disrespect). Think a casual skirt, or some pants and a nice shirt. (I sound like my mom! Now I know why she always made me change when we went for dinner at my grandma's house!). But seriously, please treat this evening with respect and dress accordingly.
We will meet at the church at 5:15pm (notice the time!) so we can set things up and be ready to eat at 6pm. You will be sitting at tables with at least one serviceman/spouse at each table. There will be a list of questions you can ask him/her, and you can take turns asking the questions. If you think of your own questions, please feel free to ask them, or share personal stories - I know a lot of you have had siblings or relatives/friends serve in the military, and this is a good time to share their stories as well. At some point in the evening one person from each table will stand with a microphone and introduce the veteran(s) at their table, using the answers to the questions as a way of telling a bit more about them.
After dinner, please stick around to help clean things up; if we all work together it will get done quickly.
Thank you, in advance, for all your help, and for your sensitivity to this evening. I think it will be a lot of fun, and also something you will remember for a long time. In the spirit of Veteran's day, I'm attaching this link to a video you may have already seen, but I'd encourage you to look at it again, and remember why we are doing all this. (grab a tissue first...) : )

YW tomorrow...the details

Hey girls -
looks like tomorrow we're going to be able to go watch Stephanie, Michaela, (anyone else?) at their choir concert tomorrow night. It's a Night of Broadway songs, so it should be a really fun concert, especially if we can all sit together and cheer really loud for our girls!
We'll meet at the church as planned, 6:30pm, then go straight over to the high school together. The concert starts at 7pm sharp.
Call any of your leaders if you need a ride, otherwise we'll see you at the church at 6:30pm!
xo Sis O.
