Relief Society Quiz - fun icebreaker idea for RS Birthday...

It's nice to have an activity for your sisters to work on together as they begin to gather at an event.  This is a quiz that may be fun to have on the tables as sisters sit down for the evening.

*Forgive the crazy "formatting"  - as it was taken off another RS blog/website and I couldn't adjust it...  The questions are in bold italic, and the answers are in bold (no italic).

(I have this saved as a word document as well as a PDF - please leave a comment, or send me an email and I'll send it to you so you can adjust it to what you need...)
