New Enrichment Leader

Hello there sisters! This is Tessa Ross and just wanted to introduce myself to you since I am the new Enrichment Leader. My husband is Cory and I have 2 little boys. Macade who is 2 1/2 and Braxton who is 4 months. I am originally from California and my husband grew up here in Issaquah. We love all outdoor things so summer is really one of our favorite times! That is just a little bit about me and i hope to get know a little bit about each one of you. I am so excited to be working with all of you and growing together as sisters!

Wish you were here!

We had such a great time at Enrichment on Thursday. Thirty four sisters came and spent two hours learning and doing and eating and visiting and having a Bloomin' good time!

We met in the Relief Society room for a quick opening exercises. We sang a song had a prayer and had a spiritual thought on Doctrine and Covenants 117:7
"Therefore, will I not make solitary places to bud and to blossom, and to bring forth in abundance? saith the Lord."

Sisters Dani Dooley, Pam Lawrenson, Deb Bennett and Heather McEwan heading into the cultural hall.

Sisters Gay Aalona and Kathy Warczak enjoy friends and the yummy treats.

Sister Ilene Johnson taught a mini class on Summertime First Aid. Sisters Carissa Poyfair and Celeste Pearson learn about sunburns, bug bites and more.

Sisters Andrea Mathison, Sheila Illig and Tessa Ross make a 5-minute craft. Ghirardelli Chocolate wraps perfect for a visiting teaching gift!

Sister Sue Johnson (second from left)was in charge of the evenings food. She made veggie pizzas, chips and dips, fruit and veggie platters, brownie bites, lemon bites and a deliciously refreshing punch with the help of several sisters including her mother-in-law Sister Jerry Johnson (far right). Sue's daughter, Dana (next to Sue) helped out in the nursery. Sister Lynda Hjelm (far left) led a delicious Summertime smoothies class.

Brother Bill Lawrenson held a mini class on Puget Sound Staycations. He had lots of great ideas. Who knew we had so much so close?!
