It's been a few weeks now (I've been slacking!) but I was able to put on an event along with the girls I work with at church. Every year the girls from youth group at church (we call it Young Women) present what they have been working on in their Personal Progress and the girls that have completed all of their personal progress get honored. The special night is called "Young Women in Excellence". Personal Progress is a program kind of like the Boy Scouts program where there are certain skills and activities the girls have to complete, but many of the skills and activities focus on building their faith in Jesus Christ through eight different values.
With the girls, we put on a night that had a cooking theme emphasizing all of the the values as if they were "ingredients" or "cooking utensils" that were necessary for every cook.
We sent out save the dates about 2 months early to make sure all of the Young Women and parents knew about it.
About a month before the event we then sent out the actual invites to get the girls excited!
It was a great event with the girls impressing me with the program we worked on and a special musical number that sounded angelic! I only wish I had taken more pictures of the night, but I do have this great picture of the girls..they did such a great job! It was really a great night of cooking up Young Women in Excellence!
