Bethel # 16

Bethel # 16 Job’s Daughters International is one of today's outstanding character-building organizations for young women between the ages of 10-20. We also have a Jobie-to-Bee program for girls 8 or 9.

In becoming a "Jobie", our daughters learn important social qualities such as leadership, teamwork, public speaking, self-confidence, philanthropy, respect, and responsibility which prepares each daughter for life as an adult.

Operating as usual

Congrats to our three new Bethel 16 members! Kathryn, Natalie, and Kayla!

Happy birthday, Mother Mick!

100 years ago... Ethel T. Wead Mick, or as we fondly refer to her as Mother Mick, had a revolutionary idea: Job's Daughters International
She saw a need and was fiercely passionate about providing mentorship and leadership opportunities for young women. Little did she know how her idea would grow and create a worldwide community.
Today we celebrate her birthday!

TO: Bethels, Bethel Guardian Councils, and GGC Members

SUBJECT: Governor of Virginia Executive Order

As many of you are aware, the Governor of Virginia issued Executive Order No. 67 which became effective midnight on Sunday. This Executive Order rolls back the state limits on public and private gatherings, allowing a maximum of 25 people at any event, whether indoors or outdoors, down from the previous limit of 250 people.

While we have no indication how long this Executive Order will remain in effect, we must comply with it during this period.

The Executive Grand Line Officers, Pageant Committee Co-Chairs and our 3 current Misses have made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Miss Job’s Daughters pageant. Our 3 Misses will continue in their positions until November 2021. This was a difficult decision for us to make. Unfortunately, due to the mandate from the Governor we cannot host this event.

A major function of our pageant is to raise funds for college scholarships for Virginia Job’s Daughters.
The Pageant Committee will be sending a letter to each individual and organization that has either purchased an ad or made a contribution, providing them with the option to allow us to use the funds for scholarships in 2021 or be reimbursed. We believe that a majority, if not all will allow us to use the funds.

The Pageant Committee plans to issue registration reimbursements to each Bethel less the cost of the candidate pageant t-shirt and face mask. The Pageant Committee will make arrangement to get these items to these daughters.

Masonic Home Christmas Caroling and Christmas Pageant scheduled for December 12 have been cancelled.

It is imperative that Virginia Job’s Daughters follow the Governor’s Executive Order No. 67 as it pertains to in person Bethel meetings, in person Installations, in person events, outdoor movie nights and any other in person activities until further notice.

Thank you for your continued understanding, support, and service to Virginia Job’s Daughters.

Happy Father's Day to all the fathers and other men who support our girls! We appreciate all the "dads" out there!

Sometimes Dads are known for their corny jokes (What's Forrest Gump's Facebook password? 1forest1 😂). Sometimes, they're known for their "atta-girl" and "you can do this!" Jobie Dads are a special group of men who show up, stand up, and give up much to see their Daughters thrive in sisterhood, leadership, and friendship. Happy Father's Day,!
