River Stake Ward Relief Society Presidencies

Here are the 48 dedicated, valiant sisters who serve so faithfully in the Relief Society of the 12 wards/branches of the River Stake.  We haven't been able to get current photos of all the presidencies as of yet - but we are getting closer.  Thanks dear sisters, for making such a difference in each of your wards.

Couponing 101

Forgive my (long) absence.  I would appreciate it if any of you readers would send me ideas you would like featured here.  Instead of trying to catch up (after the busy holidays and sending my son on his mission) - I will just jump right in and add an idea from my own ward Relief Society.  I would like to see other wards featured - I just need your information & pics.  Please send them to me at:

Thanks to Karen Palmer (4th Ward RS Historian) for taking & submitting these photos of the meeting held in the 4th Ward Relief Society on January 11th.  A screen was set up where our presenter walked through each of the websites (as shown above) that she found most valuable.

The photo above is of our presenter (seated at the computer) - Julie Smith.  She is the daughter-in-law of Claudia Smith (seated below with her daughter Katie)  She was gracious enough to talk Julie into sharing her expertise in this meeting.

It was a fascinating meeting - we learned how to make couponing actually profitable with little commitment or fuss.  Following the meeting, a hot chocolate bar was set up to make your own gourmet hot chocolate.  It was good to linger and enjoy it while visiting.

JoAnn Martin & Erin Luke (of the 4th Ward) take a chance to visit. 

Below are scans of the handouts used.  Thanks to the 4th Ward for sharing this (great) idea!
