February 100th Anniversary Theme

We have finally made it to 2020, the year of our 100th Anniversary!

As we continue through the year, don’t forget that each month has a special theme. Below we have included details about the next couple of months. Please distribute this information to your jurisdictions and Bethels.

February: Jobie to Bee

The Jobie to Bee toolkit is almost ready to take flight! Please bee on the lookout soon for more details.

March: Founder’s Month

March is the month of Mother Mick’s birthday. To celebrate her, we will be releasing a new ceremony “Mother Mick’s Bouquet” for Bethels to perform during the month. We hope to release the ceremony as soon as the Portuguese translation is finished. To help Bethels prepare, we have provided a list of the flowers included in the ceremony. We will also have hand-painted printouts of flowers available shortly.

As another way to celebrate our founder, the 100th Anniversary group has been working with Forrest Lawn Cemetery to place a memorial bench near Mother Mick’s gravesite. We would like to ask each Bethel to hold a special coin march during the month of March to help us raise the necessary funds to make this tribute possible. If every Bethel were to raise just $15, the project would be fully funded.

We are happy to announce that the ceremony is now available for Bethels here: https://www.jdi100.org/founders-month. On the site you can also find hand-painted printouts for all of the flowers. These were painted especially for this ceremony by a PHQ from California.
