A reminder of our 12 month set of challenges...

We are almost 4 months through our "2012 Year of Preparedness", a set of challenges that Bishop B. asked me to put together for our ward.  

Here is the twelve-month calendar of challenges, in case you have forgotten.

2012: A Year of Preparedness
MV Ward
No heat for one night
No lights, no powered entertainment for one evening
Learn about food storage, plan, and begin buying food from your plan
Obtain containers and fill them with water 
(and keep buying food)
Flush toilets one day with stored water.
Cook and drink using stored water for one day.
Plan 7 days of meals using only shelf stable ingredients (Shelf Stable means they don’t need refrigeration.)
Make all your meals out of shelf stable ingredients for 3 days.
Cook 2 menu items without electricity.  Show off your cooking at the ward Labor Day picnic.
Practice your preparedness skills at the MV Ward Campout.
Don’t go to the store For 6 days.
Buy Emergency Preparedness items as Christmas gifts.
January 2013: 
Learn to bathe using stored water.

Are you ready for the June challenges, using stored water to flush toilets one day, and using stored water to cook and  drink a different day?
