I really love Relief Society and my association with all these wonderful women!
On Saturday, our Stake Relief Society held a nice program for the women of our Stake in honor of the Relief Society birthday.
|There were hundreds of women there|
It also showed us pictures of Relief Society sisters from across the globe. Relief Society provides volunteer services of all kinds throughout the world, including promoting literacy and providing vital immunizations for children.
The presentation ended with a video of the song, "Daughters of a King". It was a truly beautiful program, and just the right length, I thought.
|Everyone enjoyed being able to socialize at the lovely luncheon|
We were each served up a lovely and LARGE salad of tortilla chips, black beans, salad greens, shredded cheese, and a huge scoop of shredded, mildly spicy chicken. Salad dressing was also on the table. The salads were conveniently served in containers that you could take home if you wished.
It was all planned for a minimum amount of clean-up - but it was also really tasty. Everyone at my table enjoyed the meal and commented on how delicious everything was.
|Every table had a delightful array of cupcakes for dessert|
The Stake young women helped serve the salads, I believe. It all happened so fast and efficiently, I hardly noticed them.
|Everyone received a huge chicken taco salad and a cup full of fruit. It was yummy!|

I'm so lucky to be a part of Relief Society! It is a force for good in the world, and it has blessed my life in so many ways. I am happy to count all these good women as my sisters.
So, Happy Birthday, Relief Society! You're looking good for your age...
