Camille Hendricks and her three children, Rusty, Gavin and Jaxon need a place to stay on Friday night, Saturday and Sunday, before she flies to Las Vegas on Monday October 5th. You can e-mail me or call her to let her know. She is without internet, since she is already packing. Brother Hendricks is leaving this Friday with the moving truck.
The Primary Program is next Sunday, September 27th. Please have your children there, on that day, by 8:45am to sit on the stand.
We are going to have one practice in the chapel which will be held on Saturday September 26th from 10:00am-12:00pm. This practice is really important as this will be your child’s only chance to practice in the chapel before the big day. So please make every effort to attend. As this practice will be in the chapel, please have your children come in Sunday dress to show respect. We will be providing pizza and drinks as well to make this a fun time for the teachers and the kids.
We look forward to seeing everyone next week. The kids have been working hard to make this great for you! Any questions or concerns please contact:
Lori Jolley 305-5776 firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks! The Primary Presidency
PS Please contact me if your child will not be there on that day. Thanks!
The month is officially halfway over today. Have we done our Visiting Teaching?
Visitingteachingblog.blogspot.com has a great idea for presenting the September Visiting Teaching message. There is a .pdf bookmark that is ready to download and print. You can access the Visiting Teaching Blog by following the link from the side menu on this site. (http://visitingteachingblog.blogspot.com)
There is also an idea for presenting the message using a simple homemade tree.
Any other cute ideas you would like to share? Post a comment!
We had quite the turnout for the Clay County Sheriff's Department's presentation on personal safety. For those of you who missed it, here's a brief overview of what we learned. . .
Our undercover policeman (shh!, don't tell!) began by teaching us how to avoid being targeted as a victim.
Make an impression! Don't let your guard down. Refrain from dressing like a movie star just to go shopping. Don't take your purse with you to go shopping - all you need is the money and your ID. And let's not forget about the garage door opener. :)
After some brutally honest talk about what "the bad guys" look for in a victim and what they think of us, we gathered in the gym for some practical defensive tactics. If you weren't there last night and don't know these moves, ask a friend and learn them for yourself:
Thumb & Forefinger One Finger = You Win Brachial Stun Rake the shins & Stomp Kick the Peroneal Nerve Mandibular Grab & Hold Intraorbital Eye Socket "What You're Daddy Taught Ya" with a Twist
(Leave me a comment if I missed something, and I'll add it.)
On a side note, these moves even work for our dear, sweet, kind, and gentle Sis. Hines, who was able to cause me pain (just a little bit, mind you, because she was taking it easy on me, but don't mess with her!)
A humongous "thank you" goes out to the Clay County Sheriff's Department and our super-secret undercover instructor!
And let's not forget to thank the youth who volunteered in the Nursery for over 2 hours. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
Every woman 14 and up is invited to our Personal Safety Class, provided by our Clay County Sheriff Department.
Thursday, September 10th, 7:00pm-9:00pm, nursery will be provided.
A sign up sheet will be passed starting this coming Sunday during our Relief Society Meeting for all of you that are attending. We hope to see all of you Sisters, remember to be prepared for everything.
