SUPER DATE: -
- We have yet to do this, the girls are really excited about it though.
Since the Laurels can all date, we all (leaders included) are asking someone
out (husbands hee hee) to go on a superdate. We are planning on using
either my home or the cultural hall. The girls will prepare a fun
evening for their guys, treats, games, etc. I figure I will get to
see how they act around the boys, too forward or too shy. We leaders
figure we will learn alot, and we hope the girls will have a great time. Brian and Sue Roquemore, San Antonio, Texas LAUREL ADVISOR: - Suggestions for the duties
of the Laurel Advisor LAUREL PROJECT ADVICE: - I've found the easiest
way to do a Laurel project is to do something you like doing or would like
to learn to do, for example some of my projects have been making
a scrapbook and doing two sharing times in primary. Another
one that I am in the process of getting approved is to teach my younger
brothers to play the piano.
NEWSLETTER: - My Laurel advisor mails out "Laurel
Lines" every month to the inactive Laurels. But first she call everyone
and gets info on each and every girl. Then she has the active girls
each write a small note to one of the girls and mails it to them. Last
night one of our inactive girls went to our beach activity and she made
a comment about one of the other inactive girls that she had learned from
GRADUATION GIFTS: - Our ward
makes laundry bags for all the graduating YW and YM that graduate each
year. The laundry bags were done from printed fabric. They
were all different. I think the woman who made them must have bought
inexpensive remnants. After the graduation party it was a "free for
all" to grab which bag you wanted. My daughter got one last year
and she loves it! It was a very inexpensive and practical gift.
GRADUATION GIFTS:- Our
outgoing YW Presidency made white garment bags (for future temple clothes)
with FAMILIES CAN BE TOGETHER FOREVER embroidered on the front. We
gave them to the two graduating seniors last night, the night they were
awarded their medallions.
LAURELS 2 -- PERSONAL PROGRESS: - (Make something
that will represent your understanding of and commitment to the Young Women
Them. It should be something that can serve as a reminder of your
commitment to gospel values throughout your life.) We met as a group
and made heart wreaths on a small 6-8 inch embroidery hoop. The hearts
were made uo in the value colors with cheap but cute calico fabric.
We hand stitched them, stuffed them and sewed a button to match in the
center. We then glued them onto the hoop and tied a ribbon at the
top. They were really easy and fun. The hearts were about 2
inches across in diameter if I remember correctly. We also wrapped
the hoop in a neutral fabric becasue you could see parts of the hoop between
LAURELS 2 -- PERSONAL PROGRESS: - Our Laurels mounted
a copy of the young women theme on a wooden plaque, tole painted it around
the edges for decoration, and then sealed it with varnish.
