Hello everyone!!!


On Wednesday, September 11 a few of the members of 22 and their Guardian Council attended the "9-11 Arlington Remembers" Concert, near the Iwo Jima Memorial. Bethel 1 sang at this concert - a song written specifically for Arlington, called "Arlington." They did a wonderful job and represented Job's Daughters VERY well. The concert was aired live on a local Arlington TV station.

This past weekend almost all of our members took part in the Burke Centre Festival. We had a booth with arts and crafts, as well as baked goods. While we were there we were visited by a PHQ of 22, Laura Brown and her mom, Barbara Brown, as past Guardian Secretary from our Bethel. Mom Alicia Szramoski also came by to support the Bethel, bringing her children Alex and Haley (a Jobie-to-be in about 10 years!) with her.

Thank you to the daughters and adults who helped out this weekend - - your help was greatly appreciated. Your hard work paid off!!


On Saturday, September 21 at 1 p.m., Bethels 21 and 52 will have their Grand Visitation in Manassas. Please sign up with your line officer this week if you can attend.
