The Expo is Coming!

Hooray! We have our expo date! We will be exploding with pink in the atrium on Sept. 30th from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm. I am excited! Of course, we have lots to do to prepare. Every bevy/hometeam will have their own table. You are responsible for the following.
- decorating your table ~ We really want to get the ladies excited so go all out. See the attached photos from our 2006 expo for some ideas.
- posting your information ~ At your table you need something large (ex: science board) with the name of your bevy, when and where it meets, and a decription of your bevy. You will also need something with that same information that each lady that signs up for your bevy can take with her. (ex: flyer, business card, magnet, postcard). You'll need 150 to 200 of these.
- door prize ~ We will be giving door prizes throughout the expo so each bevy will provide a door prize (ex: candles, journals). You can ask your group to pitch in for the cost.
We will have a work night to prepare for the expo on Sept. 24th from 6:00 to 8:00 in the Red Dot Room. PLEASE plan to attend! If you have not completed a JANES covenant, a background check since we moved into the new building and met with one of the JANES leaders (DeeDee, Alisa, April & Janel), you will not be able to have a table at the expo. You can complete all of these at our work night meeting on the 24th.
Our JANES blog is linked to the BAF website now!! We want everyone who visits to be able to learn about each available bevy, so we have created a link on the B-Team page (BAF JANES Bevy List) that has info about each one. I will be responsible for this page. All you need to do is let me know your info (ie. date of your first/next meeting, days you meet, time, email address, etc..) This way you don't have to be responsible for a blog unless you want to be. Please share your personal blogs with your group.
I am so glad you're a part of JANES! I am excited to be your coordinator. Please if you have any questions or concerns email me (

Go B-Team go!

Go B-Team! Hey girls, just a little business to take care of.

  • We would REALLY like all the bevies to have a blog/website. Alisa and I will create one for you if you don't want to do it. Just let us know what you want the title to be. We will gladly show you how to do it. It's super easy, fun and free. You don't have to post every day. Go to and check it out. Once you're on the net, let us know and we'll link you to the JANES Blog. We just want something that the ladies can go to and learn about your bevy. Please email me a title or let me know you are making one! We already have several!! Check them out!
  • We have a cool JANES Calendar on this site. You have all of the events listed on one master calendar so that you can plan for your own happenings as well as check out dates for events you'd like to be a part of. To list a date for an event, send the event info to me and I will make sure it gets posted.
  • If you were unable to attend the last Leadership Meeting, please check with me or Alisa for your JANES covenant and background check. You really need both of these completed before the expo.
  • Check out the E-Team's blog for info about the Expo! There is work to be done.
  • Don't forget to sign up for Prayer Night this Friday from 8pm to 8am. We always need prayer!

Ladies, I am really enjoying being a part of JANES. Thank you for the opportunity. I CARE about each one of you. If you have any questions, concerns, or need some extra prayer, just let me know.
