“Everything You Need to Know to Be a Princess,” has been published so that any motivated member of a Temple can coordinate this fun and beneficial presentation and implement it with the help of the Past Queens, Officers and Temple members.
Why do we think this program is invaluable? Not only does it build self-confidence in each attendee with the new knowledge acquired, but also this added understanding of Daughters of the Nile and the fellowship experienced among the participants, oftentimes prompts a member to accept a leadership role within her Temple. It provides a social get-together for all of your members, who after experiencing such a positive and exciting event, will attend many more Daughters of the Nile activities.
Therefore, it is of utmost importance to the future of our entire organization that as many Temples as possible have this user-friendly written plan, which simplifies the implementation of the program for all Temples. The program comes in a notebook and includes all of the information needed to implement the program. The Queen or senior representative from each Temple received this notebook at Supreme Session. The program in its entirety is also available on the Education Development Committee’s webpage and is downloadable.
The program includes six sections. All of the components are offered as guidelines for a Temple’s use in customizing the presentation. If you want to present one section at a time or plan for an entire day’s program, you may pick and choose what your members would like included.
I. Procedure – room set-up, sample letters, flyer/invitation, and supplies needed
