Just a reminder that it is almost the end of the month. If you have been visiting teaching please report to Jo-anne  or Elaine. If you havn't been it's not too late. Please let us know if there are any sisters in need of help.

Blankets and Wool

Bishop would like an "inventory" on who has spare blankets. We don't need  any blankets at the moment but Bishop  Smith would like to know who has any blankets they could spare in an emergency, either to give away or to lend. I will ask on Sunday.
Also Stake YW have asked for donations of knitting wool for a project in August. So if you have any wool you are not using see Blanche. She would also like some knitters to help with the project. Let Blanche know if you can help.

Well is seems we forgot the icecream last Sunday. Sorry about that. We have decided to have Milo this Sunday instead, considering how cold its been.
Bec and Jody would like to have a quick meeting with the Mums after Relief Society. It will be in the Lounge where we have Relief Society.  Any Mums with young children who are interested in Playgroup are invited to come to a quick meeting to confirm plans to get playgroup started.

 Craft days are about to begin!  Once a month you can join together with other beginner/old hand scrapbookers to have fun and crank out some cool stuff!
The first one is at Chelsea's place on Thursday 10th July, 10am - 12 noon.  Just  bring what you want to work on.
Alternately you could buy one of these cute Maya Road chipboard albums off Chelsea and work on it each month with the help of Chelsea to make it cool!!  A couple of pages a month and it could be a  great gift for Christmas!  Let Chelsea know soon if you would like to get one.
Albums are pretty cheap.  An 8 x 8 inch is $8.50,    a 6 x 6 is $6,     or a  4 x 4 is $5
Look forward to seeing you there...


Needlecraft will start the on the 23rd July. You can work on your own project or make a casserole carrier. It will be held at Debbie's place at 10.00 -12.00 as well as at 7.30 -9.30 in the evening. Come morning or evening or both!

Our first walk was great. The walkers were Marj, Bec, Chelsea, Annette, (Chelsea's mum) Elle and Debbie. We had 5 riders (in prams). It was a very cold morning but we rugged up and soon warmed up. We had a great time walking and chatting. There was a nice playground for the children to have a little play when we finished but it was too cold to stay for long. We are all looking forward to the 2nd of July when we will do it all again. Come and join in. It's fun, even in the cold weather. Thanks for organising it Bec.

Leadership Meeting with Elder Sybrowsky "Come and See"

Elder and Sister Sybrowsky spoke to us as did President and Sister Lee from the Melblourne West Mission. We also heard from President and Sister Prebble.
They invited us to share the gospel with others and taught us about leadership. A couple of quotes from the meeting were:

"This life is not a game. The time we have is limited. We will give a stewardwhip report."
"We (the church) do not compete with the world as entertainment."

Mosiah 23: 14-18
And also trust no one to be your teacher nor your minister, except he be a man of God, walking in his ways and keeping his commandments.
Thus did Alma teach his people, that every man should love his neighbor as himself, that there should be no contention among them.

Mosiah 2: 41
And moreover, I would desire that ye should consider on the blessed and happy state of those that keep the commandments of God. For behold, they are blessed in all things, both temporal and spiritual; and if they hold out faithful to the end they are received into heaven, that thereby they may dwell with God in a state of neverending happiness.  O remember, remember that these things are true; for the Lord God hath spoke it.

We were also reminded of the goals President Prebble spoke about at Stake Conference

 We need some volunteers to make soup for the HFPE  evening on the 24 th June. If you are able to help please see either Sister Andy King or Angela Stewart.  Please keep receipts of costs so that you can be reimbursed.

We also have some mid-week activities organised so check the sidebar for details. Sisters Rebecca Bone and Sister Marjorie Lorraine have been busy organising activities so remember to check the blog Mid-Week Activities Spot for activities you may be interested in attending.

Also there was a car key found in the Ladies toilets on Sunday. It's for a Ford car so if you are missing a key it is on the notice board.

We have a baptism on Saturday 15th of June at 4.oopm. Andrea has been attending church for a few weeks now and she will be baptised on Saturday. It would be nice to see some sisters come and support Andrea in the important decision she has made. Please introduce yourself to her and get to know her and her little baby Eva. 

Sunday 9th June

Today we had 9 visitors in Relief Society. We hope they enjoyed their visit and that some of you got to speak to some of them.  There were a large no of sisters in Releif Society and we all got to participate in the lesson. We sang a Primary Song about baptism and then Sister Pat Barwick gave us an interesting lesson about Baptism and the Holy Ghost.

Farewell Charlotte

This week Charlotte Wheeler was married to Jake Prebble, in the Sydney Temple.  Rumour has it that they will not be living in our ward boundry. We didn't see Charlotte in Relief Society very often because she was serving in Primary but we will miss her from our ward. We wish them all the very best for their future together. I'm sure we'll see them occasionally. CONGRATULATIONS and BEST WISHES.

Is there where I can say thank you to all involved in my quilt. I just love it and have been putting it to good use. Thank you for the signatures on the back, that was a wonderful idea.

Love you all,
