You Make a Difference

For a Young Women in Excellence evening, the Young Women chose someone in their life that they admired and desired to emulate, thereby choosing a "real-life hero" or role model.  Boundaries were set for the nominees such as ward members, mothers, teachers in school, seminary, or primary, members or non-members.  Invitations were sent by the girls chosen to be their Special Guest.  We tried to make this as nice an evening as possible.  Talks were assigned, divided between YW and leaders on Heroes in the Scriptures, everyday heroes, and the definition of heroism.  Thanks you cards or notes of appreciate were written and given to the Special Guests to read later.  One Young Woman from each class gave a short talk about what YW Value she sees in this Special Guest as a positive influence for her.

It was a fun night with  friends, neighbors, and old school teachers.  Everyone wants to know they make a difference!  The evening wrapped with a message from the YW President and a musical number by the girls followed by Hero sandwiches and punch.
