"Camp Motherhood." That's the theme for the American Mothers, Inc. of Cache Valley's 20th annual mini-conference. The mini-conference will be held Saturday, October 17th from 9 a.m. to 12 noon at the Providence Stake Center in River Heights.
This year's keynote speaker is Ann Monson Dibb, current counselor in the General Young Women Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. There are also three motherhood and family workshops presented by Emi Dalton Edgley, Jane Ward and Michelle Hunsaker.
A special tribute will be made to the late Barbara Hales and her lifelong devotion to childrens books. The event is free and women of all ages are invited.
"We'll have a special table set up in her honor of all of her favorite books," Weese said. "She was the Mother Teresa of Cache Valley, I really believe she had such an influence on so many mothers and she inspired us all to love good books and she made those available to us."
There is a suggested donation of $3 for the continental breakfast. There will be displays ranging from gift-giving suggestions and meal planning to children's photography ideas and holiday decorating.
