Cannery Update

The signups for Salsa and Spaghetti Sauce will open on May 7th @ 6:05 a.m. (That’s right! You can sleep an extra 5 minutes!!! No need to say Thank You.)

Keep this email so you will have the links to sign up when the time comes!!

Ø There will be a limit of 6 cases per person for each product and both products will cost $15.00/case of 12 pint jars (16 oz).

Ø You are only allowed to sign up for one shift per person.

Ø If you are not ordering the full limit, please only schedule one person per household to be fair to others.

Ø If you are helping a 2nd person sign up, it must be under a different name. Duplicate registrations (2nd entry with the same name) will be deleted so others will have the chance to sign up.

Please pay special attention to the FDA rules on how to dress for your shift. The weather will be warm by that time (fingers crossed, prayers answered) and you will be tempted to wear shorts and sandals/flip-flops. DO NOT WEAR SHORTS OR SANDALS/FLIP-FLOPS TO YOUR SHIFT. We have some real fashion-statement boots that you will be asked to wear—that many other people have also worn—if you do not comply.

Those scheduling for the 1st day of any product will have to come back at a later, specified date (see instructions on the link) to pick up their product.

Spaghetti Sauce Links (for preview only until May 7th):

THOSE WHO WERE ABLE TO SIGN UP FOR JAM: Reminders for your shifts will be sent on Thursday, April 28th or Friday, April 29th. Please make sure that the date and time listed on the reminder is when you thought you were coming and be sure that you are still able to fill this shift. If there is a conflict, please go to the sign-up link and UNDO your shift so those who are waiting to sign up can fill your spot.

THOSE WHO ARE WAITING FOR AN OPPORTUNITY TO SIGN UP FOR JAM: Return to the links often to see if spots have become available. You are looking for a box that says “Schedule this shift” on a day (link) and time (signup column) that you are available to come and work. There will either be a name with an UNDO box or a “Schedule This Shift” box in each available spot. If you see any blank boxes, it means we did not need that spot on that shift.

If you go to the website and it says “This Sign-up is Currently Closed”, that is when you need to call the Cannery (801-785-0998) to cancel your shift or check for available openings.

quilts for japan

The church has posted about an immediate need for twin and full-sized quilts to relieve suffering in the disaster in Japan. I have scheduled the ward building from 8-4 this Saturday to tie quilts. This is obviously last minute, but also as obviously, an easy thing we can do to give service and help our sweet brothers and sisters. This would be a great opportunity to teach your older children about the power of timely service (even when it might be a little inconvenient).

Saturday, March 19th
8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
1075 W 1100 N (church building)
Orem, UT

Come tie quilts to be donated to Japan. If you have twin or larger sheets, batting, or yarn you can donate, bring those as well.

Cookies provided. :)

Anyone who comes to help for at least an hour, or who donates materials will be entered to win a prize.

Please, consider coming to help, and invite friends and family members (even the bretheren!) who are willing to come or donate materials as well. The more we can get done, the better.

Comment with any questions. Pass the word along to anyone who is willing to help.
Thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

January RS Meeting: Service and Personal Health

Wednesday, January 12th, 2011

We will be continuing work on the file folder service project we started last activity as well as starting a new service project. In addition, Kirstin Spencer's sister is coming to do a little "Introduction to Yoga" class for us, so come prepared to exercise! If you have a yoga mat, bring it. If not, she has some extras you can use. . We will have light snacks. This is a great opportunity to invite your visiting teaching sisters to join us. Hope to see you there!

P.S. I have had a few complaints that people aren't hearing announcements. While we do all we can to announce activities in each auxiliary, we're sorry we missed you. Please know you can find information on activities in the RS newsletter, on the ward calendar, on Facebook, and the RS blog. We are in the process of planning exact dates for the activities for the rest of the year, and will get those to you as soon as we have them so you can mark your calendar.We will continue to email about activities as well, and will continue to phase out flyers for both cost and convenience purposes.

General Conference

Just a reminder that General Conference is this weekend, October 2nd and 3rd. Morning sessions start at 10am and Afternoon sessions at 2pm. You can watch on KSL (Channel 5?) or listen on the radio, or even online.

Also, here's a great link to the church's children's conference site. There are games, coloring pages, and other activities to help keep your kids interested.

I always love General Conference time, it's a nice change of pace and a great time to be really edified for a few days. Please, make an effort to watch all sessions. You will see blessings for your efforts.
