Job’s Daughters of Nebraska met for its annual Grand Session where the members spent two days competing in ritual (speech), music and signing, and arts and crafts competitions.
On the third day, the members conducted the annual meeting where they report on activities statewide in the past year, share reports on Nebraska recipients of hearing improvement kids endowments, consider and vote on amendments proposed by the members to their bylaws, as well as, reconnect with old friends and make new ones, according to a press release from the local chapter.
The “Let your Dreams Set Sail” session was at the Younes conference center in Kearney June 26-29.
North Platte members of Bethel No. 4 who attended were Jessyka Eshleman, Emma Dowhower and Grace Tanner. Eshleman presided as Grand Bethel fifth messenger and Dowhower presided as Grand Bethel treasurer during this year’s session. On June 26, the girls had fun night at the Big Apple with laser tag and games. On June 28, the Grand Bethel chose the members to be officers for the upcoming year. Dowhower will be Grand Bethel Senior Princess and Tanner a Grand representative for the 2019-20 year.
On the evening of June 28, the girls had a formal banquet with the Miss Nebraska Spirit Ambassadors, and take part in the Miss Nebraska Job’s Daughters pageant and awards. The members from Bethel No. 4 North Platte took home the following awards: Jayna Schultz, third place for beginner painting and drawing; Tanner, first place for poetry ages 10-12; Eshleman, first place for poetry ages 16-20; Dowhower, first place for the workshop writing prompt ages 16-20, first place voice Division 2, third place instrument for intermediate; Shannon Roberts, first place for adult story of Job; Maci Roberts, third place as a Jobie to Bee, second place for Circle of Five (Eshleman, Dowhower and Tanner); and Sierra Dowhower was awarded the exemplary Leadership award for her term as Honored Queen last year.
