A Very Busy December
Bethel #2 had a very busy December for 2012. December 1 was scheduled to be the Sparks Hometown Hometown Christmas Parade, but due to severe weather and flooding to be expected, the Parade was postponed to the next Saturday. Saturday morning everyone met at the Thornhill’s shop where they let us store the float and use as an area to decorate. The float hooked up to Mrs. Foster’s truck and we all headed over to the staging area. There last minute touches were finished and the electric was hooked up by Mr. White. The girls must have worn out our song that we were going to dance to, “Good Times” by Owl City, because a fuse blew on the truck right as the parade started and we had no music or inflated snowmen. In spite of all this the girls had lots of fun being in the parade. The rest of December included Breakfast with Santa hosted by Adah chapter OES, our JD2Bees having their first activity at the first meeting and a super fun Christmas party Ornament exchange.

What is Supreme Session?
Every year the Supreme Bethel and Supreme Council hold a convention for Job’s Daughters from around the world. At Session there are competitions for Daughters to participate in. The Miss International Job’s Daughter pageant is held as well as selection and Installation of Supreme Bethel Officers. In July, Session will be held in Oakland CA and we are offering as many fundraisers as possible so that every Bethel #2 member is able to go. This will be the first time our Bethel as a whole has had the opportunity to go so, mark your calendars and work really hard at the fundraisers and we can all witness Job’s Daughters International !
The Buzz from the Bees
Our Bees had a really fun time making a “Christmas Lights” picture with their thumb prints, check out our FB page for pics. We will be welcoming a new JD2Bee at Installation, Elizabeth Stutzman. Her mom Vickie is a Majority Member from Wyoming and is currently Associate Matron of Adah OES.

What do I wear!!!!
In Job’s Daughters different events require specific attire. How do we define the difference? Here are the ones you need to know for the Upcoming Events. Formal ~ It’s time to get dressed up! Get your dressiest dress as long as it is finger tip length or longer and has some kind of strap. Do up your hair and you’re ready to go! Meeting Dress~ The rule of thumb is that a dress should be finger tip length but, also shouldn’t raise much past mid thigh when sitting. Also, make sure that bra straps are not peeking out.
Let make some money!!
Here are our continuing fundraisers…………………. “It’s My Community Store.com” please take flyers to local business and encourage them to buy their office supplies that they already use in their business from this web site and the site gives Reno Job’s Daughters 10% of the purchase. Also, tell them that the site is run out of Sparks so there are also supporting a fellow local business. Entertainment Coupon books $30 These books have great deals for local shops, restaurants and services. If we can get each girl and adult to sell just one, we will have sold all of the books we purchased. So, please take one home and make an effort to sell it before Installation! Remember girls, you earn the money to have fun activities and to be able to go to Supreme Session!
