A note from the Grand Guardian: This year is off to a wonderful start. The Official Visits and the Daughters have been fantastic. Each visit has been unique and enjoyable. It is such a joy to witness the growth of the Bethels and the commitment of the girls and adults. This year's membership theme is "Dream Big." I hope each of you is bringing friends to activities, and getting them interested in Job's Daughters. Every member is important. Be sure to encourage new members to get involved. The more you put into Job's Daughters, the more you will get out of it. If you have a Bethel sister you have not seen for a while, call them and make a special effort to get them involved in the Bethel again. This Order was founded on one woman's Dreams. With all of us "Dreaming Big," Job's Daughters will continue to grow and prosper. I am looking forward to meeting each and every one of you at the Official Visits, picnics, receptions, and Grand Bethel. Always remember to "Believe in Your Dreams." Charlotte Keel Grand Guardian

A note from the Associate Grand Guardian: Mrs. Keel and I began our travels on January 15th in Roseville. That evening our journey took us on a train ride of our 'dreams' to each Official Visit we will make this year. The visits have been lots of fun. We have celebrated our birthdays numerous time - eaten lots of cupcakes and played birthday games. We are getting to know the wonderful Job's Daughters and dedicated adult workers. Our travels took us to Oakhurst in late January where we met with the Grand Bethel Girls. This great group of young ladies have planned a wonderful Grand Bethel and we hope all of you are planning on being there. This year we will again support the Supreme Project H.I.K.E. (Hearing Impaired Kids Endowment). We are hoping that there will be a couple of presentations of hearing devices in California this year. The Philanthropic Project this year is Freedom Dogs. This project focuses on providing assistance to the wounded military returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) and TBI (traumatic brain injury). One Freedom Dog can change the life of many of our wounded warriors. We hope that the Bethels will make donations to help train these incredible dogs. You can choose what your donations will go for - like food, equipment and toys, vet care, mats and blankets or insurance. We are hoping that there will be some special guests from Freedom Dogs at Grand Bethel. I am looking forward to my travels in California this year and meeting each of you. Don Lenaburg Associate Grand Guardian WE'RE LOOKING FOR GOOD NEWS! Has your Bethel done something special in the last few months? Have you initiated a group of new members?

Every year at about this time, the excitement builds and anticipation turns to planning. Memories are tested and Bethels start to buzz with ideas, suggestions and plans. Some Bethels are picking a Grand Bethel Officer for the upcoming year, while others work out who is going and who is rooming with whom. Fundraisers are in full swing and shopping for necessities has begun. Yep, planning for Grand Bethel is in full swing. Bethels are planning who will be competing in: Ritual Competition; Singing; Volleyball; Variety Show; Arts and Crafts; Sew and Show; Miss California; and Drill. The work to pick look-alike material, mascots, and trade items is being done with great care: each Bethel wants to be unique. Last year, was your Bethel one of the Bethels that said "We can do that" after watching the Drill Team Competition? Were you the one that watched the routines and said "I can do that" or "They should have done this or that" or "We could do this and totally win!" Do you belong to a Bethel that is close knit and where the girls have bonded? Do you want be one of the girls that is part of a team with their fellow sisters working to be the best you can be? I think the answer is YES! I think every Bethel and every Daughter wants to have a great time while competing to be the best. Because of this, I think every Bethel should sign up for and compete in the Drill Team competition. Don't let what happened last year happen this year. Don't miss the opportunity to sign up to compete in Drill Team. Help your fellow sisters have the opportunity to show off their talent, their personalities and how close your Bethel is. I know your Bethel wants to have a great time and try new things. I know you and your Bethel Sisters want a challenge that is fun, and allows you to show off. I know you want to show how close knit your Bethel is, how motivated they are, and that they are willing to work to get what they want. So, what are you waiting for? Get your Bethel Sisters together and sign up for the Drill Team Competition. What, you don't have enough girls? So join with a nearby Bethel and enter the special combined Bethel class. Application forms are available at If you are interested in helping with the Drill Team Competition in any way, I would be excited to have your help. Please email me at [email protected] and let me know how you want to help. I look forward to be overwhelmed with applications for Drill Team Competition this year. Don't let your Bethel be the one that says "We should have done that." Rob Boswell Drill Team Chairman

Time flies when you're having fun! We all know that phrase; everyone always says it. However, I had never truly experienced what it meant until I began my journeys as Miss California Job's Daughter last June. Has it really been 6 months? Are there really only 6 months left before it is my turn to pass down this cape and crown to the next deserving young woman? The truth is, yes, my time as Miss California Job's Daughter is half over. However, these last 6 months have been the most amazing of my life. I have traveled over 10,000 miles (and counting) and represented my favorite organization in the world (Job's Daughters, of course!) at so many amazing events. I was able to travel to Colorado Springs, Colorado for Supreme Session 2010 and compete in the Miss International Pageant and I have attended Southern California DeMolay Conclave, Grand Lodge, Bright Side of Youth, Grand Chapter, Grand Council and Northern California DeMolay Convention. I have also been to countless receptions, official visits, installations, Bethel meetings, picnics, fundraisers, fun events and more! And my calendar is definitely booked for the rest of the year. I cannot wait to continue my travels! The theme I have chosen for this year is, "Your eyes are an ocean in which your dreams are reflected." Becoming Miss California Job's Daughter is probably the biggest dream I have ever had. Though the road getting there had a few rough patches, I continued to visualize my goal and look where I am now! I am so thrilled to have been able to have this opportunity and I cannot speak highly enough about the pageant. It has helped me in so many ways because I learned so much about not only Job's Daughters, but about myself as well. If you have any questions at all, you are more than welcome to e-mail at [email protected] and I will do my best at answering them! I can't wait to meet many more of you along my travels during the next 6 months! Be sure to remember to send me invitations to your Installations or any special events.
