Welcome Grace! This month we welcomed Grace into our Northern Brisbane group. Welcome Ceremonies are always exciting as we get to welcome a new girl into our beautiful organisation. The ceremony was followed by afternoon tea and many rounds of games and fun. We know Grace will have a fantastic time at Northern Brisbane and will become an amazing member!


During March we also recognise our founder Mother Mick. Jobs daughters was founded in 1920 by Mrs Ethel T Weed Mick and every March we take the time to recognise her. She was born on the 9th of March 1881 and in 1933 it was voted that everyone in Jobs Daughters would celebrate this day in honour of her. Northern Brisbane celebrated her through an entertaining librarian's report where Mother Mick came and informed the girls how Jobs Daughters was started. On March 9th JDIqld celebrated her birthday with a picnic at the park where we all joined together and played games and enjoyed some cake. Jobs Daughters wouldn’t be an organisation without Mother Mick, so we always take the time every March to recognise and thank her for everything she has done for Jobs Daughters across the globe.


Shelly Cole and the centennial caravan came to QLD which had lots of old Jobs Daughters memorabilia and merchandise. The afternoon was consisted of a mad hatter's tea party where everyone came with a crazy hat and enjoyed some afternoon tea. Some of the Jobs daughter memorabilia were the 3 different types of crowns and a ritual singed by Mother Mick. It was a lovely afternoon seeing all the memorabilia that Jobs Daughters has.

Each year, the Honoured Queen (she's like the president of our local group) organises a "mystery" trip for all of our members - everything about this trip is kept secret!

In January, it was Lucy’s mystery trip. We went to House of Happiness in Bribie island for the weekend and had lots of fun relaxing and playing games.

It was such a hot day, we couldn't wait to get in the pool! :)

It was really good that the Rodrigeuz family could make it (they live in Toowoomba) so we got to know them more and got to spend more time together. On the first night, we did karaoke and then watched Princess Diaries. !

The next day, we hung out in the pool again and played a lot of board games. Some of us girls even went to the beach which was a lot of fun.

That night everyone just hung around talking with one another and some of us played even more games.

Overall it was a very fun weekend of fun, food & swimming!! It was a great 3 days where we could just relax and spend a wonderful time together.  A great start to the new year!!

Dear Santa, 


Bethel 23 Northern Brisbane has been really good this month! 


We’ve had many Jobie activities!


We held our annual Christmas meeting, and we decorated gingerbread cookies and shared some Christmas cheer through secret Santa presents. Georgia’s friend Grace came along too!


Aerin held her senior princess fundraiser at Bunnings. It was Christmas bake sale (Santa you would Iove the date loaf).


We had our Christmas catering at Melaleuca Grove retirement village and Georgia, Olivia, Aerin, and Molly served the 3 course Christmas meal to the residence at the retirement village. But it wouldn’t have been possible without our adult cooks, Beth, David, Gayle, Peter and Natalie. 


The annual JGC swimming carnival was held, bethel 23 girls, Olivia, Miabelle, Georgia, Jasmine, Stella, and Sienna competed in many races including freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly. We may not all be swimmers, but we certainly tried! One of the greatest moments was that we made a new friend Maite who is a Jobie to bee. We competed in lots of novelty races including the reindeer races (Rudolf would have been proud!). We completed the swimming carnival with war cry’s, everyone’s went to the tune of jingle bells! Everyone got in the pool and gave it ago at the swimming carnival it was soo much fun! 


After the swimming carnival we had the JGC Christmas party where we continued with some novelty events and had fun with some free swimming in the pool! 


Olivia held a promotional fundraiser at the Lawnton twilight markets. Our youngest Jobies made fantastic elves, Miabelle, Madison, and Sienna. They were all there promoting Jobs daughters and fundraising for the educational and promotion fund. 


We had so much fun this month and we were all very good! 


We promise we will continue to be good for all of next year. 


All we ask for Christmas is some new members, sisters who can share in our fun! 


From Bethel 23 Northern Brisbane!
