Theme: Oh, How We Need Each Other!
It's that time of year again to start preparing for our annual stake's RS/YW/Primary Sept. Service/Women's Broadcast Event. I am going to show you some of the projects to get familiar with them before our event. I considered frugality in cost/shipping, leftover materials/supplies from last year's event, our community needs and love and all of you :)
